Headache Prevention with NTI
When it comes to our overall health, we can often overlook the impact good dental care can have. This is especially true if you suffer from regular headaches, migraines, or TMJ pain.
The Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition (NTI) tension suppression system is a revolutionary, FDA-approved treatment for chronic migraines and headaches. It is the first non-surgical, non-drug method approved to help prevent headaches and related problems.
If you’re struggling with headaches, migraines or related pain, Bruce L. Rothschild, DDS & Associates, P.L.L.C. may be able to help you lead a more healthy and pain-free life with the help of NTI.
What is NTI?
The NTI device is a type of mouthguard that you wear at night. It works by preventing bruxism (grinding and clenching) and other factors that often lead to headaches upon waking in the morning.
The NTI mouthguard is custom-fitted to your mouth so that it fits perfectly over your front upper teeth. By doing so, it separates your canine and back teeth to minimize the harmful effects of grinding and clenching during sleep.
How NTI Works to Prevent Headaches
NTI-tss stands for Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition-tension suppression system. The trigeminal nerve is located in the head and neck, and nociceptors are what send signals to the brain upon injury.
The NTI-tss device works to reduce the tension in these nerve systems within the head and neck that often leads to headaches, migraine, and jaw pain.
The NTI device is a small, acrylic mouthpiece that fits over the top two front teeth and clicks into place. By designing the NTI device specifically to fit your bite, Bruce L. Rothschild, DDS & Associates, P.L.L.C. can ensure that the device stays in place and fits comfortably so that you can rest your mouth and jaw while wearing it.
The device allows your mouth to rest in a stable position, releasing the tension on the muscles and malfunctioning nerves in your jaw and neck.
