Suffering From Migraines?
It is estimated that over 29 million Americans suffer from migraines. A relatively new dental appliance called the NTI-tss. It is an FDA approved migraine prevention option; a small nightguard that comfortably fits over your four front teeth and its design prevents your canine (eyeteeth) and back teeth from touching. This separation reduces the intensity of your nighttime clenching forces.
To understand how this appliance works, while biting down on a pencil with your back teeth, place your fingertips over the muscles of your temples with as much force as possible. The temporal muscles will swell and strongly contract. Now place the pencil between your front teeth and forcibly close down. Notice how the temporal muscles remain relaxed. This weakened clenching force prevents an overactive nerve response preventing the migraines.
This therapeutic protocol was developed California dentist, James Boyd, DDS. Dr. Boyd suffered chronic, daily headaches and frequent migraine attacks for over 12 years and developed the protocol to free himself of the pain from migraines. He is now an associate with The Headache Center Neurology clinic in Encinitas, CA.
If you have resorted to any of the following to prevent or relieve migraine headaches with little or no relief, this appliance may be the solution for you.
