NTI TSS Plus - Migraine Prevention
La Costa Del Sur Dental
NTI TSS Plus
The NTI-tss Plus is a small, taco-shaped device that fits securely and comfortable on your upper or lower front teeth while you sleep. It is a small custom fit piece of thermoplastic, not a large obtrusive bite guard. Over 29 million Americans suffer from migraines. The NTI-tss is an FDA approved migraine prevention option. It is a small nightguard that comfortably fits over your four front teeth. Its patented design keeps your canine and back teeth apart. This separation minimizes the intensity of your nighttime clenching forces. To demonstrate how the NTI-tss works, touch the muscles of the temples while biting down on a pencil with the back teeth as hard as possible. The temporal muscles will bulge and intensely contract. Now bite down on a pencil with only the front teeth. Those same temporal muscles remain relaxed. This diminished clenching intensity prevents a hyperactive nerve response, and thus, prevents migraines. The NTI-tss therapeutic protocol was developed by a California dentist, James Boyd, DDS. Having suffered chronic, daily headaches and frequent migraine attacks for 12 years, Dr. Boyd developed the protocol to rid him of pain. He is now an associate with The Headache Center Neurology clinic in Encinitas, CA.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.
