What Causes Migraines?

Many people who have migraines grind their teeth and clench their jaws. This typically occurs when the individual is asleep so many times they are not aware of what they are doing.

  • Grinding and clenching aggravates the trigeminal nerve – a facial nerve that affects 4 areas: the eyes, forehead, the upper and lower jaw
  • In reaction to stress, the nerve becomes over stimulated causing migraines and other chronic types of discomfort

How Does The NTI Alleviate Pain?

NTI-tss stands for Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition tension suppression system. The name is certainly a mouthful to say, but the device isn’t. It is a very small piece of custom molded acrylic that fits comfortably between your front teeth.

The NTI prevents your teeth from coming together and your gel muscles from engaging as you back down. This allows the nerve in your face to relax and return to normal function.
