The Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition Tension Suppression System, an acrylic mini-splint that fits over the teeth, reduces the intensity of jaw clenching during sleep and the headache pain that comes along with it. It is completely different from any other type of mouthpiece.
Patients typically get relief from tension headaches within the first week, but with migraines, it may take a few weeks. In a clinical trial on patients who averaged two migraine headaches monthly, 82% of the patients reported a 77% average reduction in their migraine frequency.
Using the body`s natural reflex protection by preventing the parafunctional contacting of the canine and molar teeth, the NTI prevents and reduces the muscular component of migraine, chronic headache and jaw disorders.
