Headache Therapy NTI-TSS Device

Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition (NTI)

Headache Therapy NTI dental appliance is used for the treatment of migraine pain and associated tension headaches. By reducing muscle contraction intensity during parafunctional activity, the NTI-tss Plus minimizes tooth wear, reduces joint strain and disc load and decreases muscle tension leading to fewer migraines and morning headaches.

The NTI (Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition) appliance is an intra-oral small appliance that Dr. Nason uses to stop or severely reduce the clenching of a patient while he or she is sleeping. By reducing the intensity of involuntary clenching at night while you’re asleep the NTI device minimizes clenching intensity and, in time, minimizes intense clenching as the source of your pain.

Within a few hours to a few weeks; it all depends. Many of our patients report significant relief, others usually within a month. Your highly trained clenching muscles have to un-learn their intense activity, and the time it takes to accomplish this varies from patient to patient.

The NTI device may eliminate the need for prescription and over-the-counter pain medications that you take for morning headache, sore neck, sore jaws, and related pain associated with involuntary clenching of the teeth. Because NTI helps reduce your clenching, it helps maximize your comfort and should minimize your need for medications. You may find that you are more productive and that you can do more throughout the day because you are pain-free and more comfortable with less tension and stress.

Headache Therapy at Leslie Nason DDS

Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition (NTI)

The NTI headache therapy device suppresses the muscles used to clench the teeth together. This not only alleviates the pain associated with this type of habit and also protects the teeth from continued wear and possible fractures. The NTI works because with the appliance in place none of the teeth can touch. Since you cannot contact the teeth there is no clenching which keeps the muscles from becoming fatigued from constant and usually intense contraction.

Dr. Nason is an expert NTI dentist, and an advocate of minimally-invasive dentistry. She specializes in the fitting and adjustment of NTI appliances, he knows and trusts the technology, and she wants it to be available to those who need it. If you feel like you could benefit from an NTI or have any questions or dental concerns please call our Keller Texas dental office.
