Dental Help for Headaches in Guntersville, AL
Do you suffer from frequent headaches? We may be able to help!
Many people who suffer from headaches, including migraines and tension headaches, are clenching their teeth at night. What’s worse- most don’t realize they are doing this. The NTI-tss Plus™ appliance 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.
To demonstrate how the NTI-tss works, simply touch the muscles of your temples while biting down on a pencil with the back teeth as hard as possible. The temporal muscles will bulge and intensely contract. When you bite down on a pencil, with only the front teeth, the temporal muscles remain relaxed.
There is a great informational video at www.theheadacheremedy.com. We encourage you to watch this short video to really understand how the NTI can work for you.
The NTI appliance is a small, clear nightguard that covers only your four front teeth. Due to its small size, it is comfortable to wear while you sleep. The NTI is custom fabricated to be worn on either your upper or lower teeth. It is made using a safe, non-toxic thermoplastic and does not contain Bisphenol A.
Does it really work?
In a clinical trial, 82% of NTI-tss users experienced a 77% reduction in migraine events…with no medical side effects. This is an amazing result!
How do I get the NTI-tss Plus?
The NTI-tss Plus is only available from a licensed dentist. Dr. Chris Harper at Total Dental Care is an NTI provider. Call us to schedule a consultation, and if Dr. Harper determines that you are a good candidate for the NTI, we will take impressions of your teeth and send the impressions to our lab. In about two weeks, you will return to our office to try in the NTI appliance. After wearing it for a few weeks, we hope to hear from you that you’ve noticed a significant reduction in the frequency and severity of your headaches!
Will my insurance cover this?
Some insurance plans will pay for some or all of the NTI appliance. Consult your dental and medical insurance companies for details on coverage.
