Your dentist has a simple solution for treating headaches. It’s called the NTI-tss Plus™.
The NTI-tss Plus™ is indicated for the prevention of migraine headaches. In a clinical trial, 82% of NTI-tss users experienced a 77% reduction in migraine events…with no medical side effects.
How does it work?
During sleep, everyone clenches their teeth. For many, clenching and grinding causes migraine or tension-type headaches. The NTI-tss Plus™ reduces clenching by not allowing the canine or back teeth to touch. This diminishes muscle contractions in the head and face. Intense muscle activity can cause headaches and migraines.
To demonstrate how the NTI-tss works, simply touch the muscles of your temples while biting down on a pencil with the back teeth as hard as possible. The temporal muscles will bulge and intensely contract. When you bite down on a pencil, with only the front teeth, the temporal muscles remain relaxed.
What is it?
A small, clear nightguard that only covers your four front teeth. Due to its small size, it is comfortable to wear while you sleep. The NTI-tss Plus™ is custom fabricated to be worn on either your upper or lower teeth. It is made using a safe, non-toxic thermoplastic and does not contain Bisphenol A.
