Jaw Pain and Headache Solutions

Did you know that chronic headaches and other head, neck, and shoulder pain often have dental causes?

When that’s the case, reaching out for a dental solution makes far more sense than repeatedly treating the symptom with painkillers, acupuncture, chiropractic care, or other therapy.

One excellent solution for many is NTI-tss – a form of appliance therapy with a proven record of preventing migraines and pain from bruxing (clenching and grinding) or dysfunction in the muscles of the mouth and face. It works by reducing the intensity of jaw clenching you sleep.

NTI-tss is a small, nearly invisible, removable device. Unlike the traditional mouthpiece with a flat surface, the NTI-tss is custom-fitted to prevent the tooth surfaces from ever coming into intense contact.

There are no drugs or surgery involved. We just take impressions of your teeth and send them to the lab that will fabricate the device for your mouth.

Clinical trials have proven that 82% of migraine sufferers had a 77% average reduction of migraine incidents once they began using NTI-tss.

It’s the non-drug method of choice for preventing jaw and headache pain.

Another effective pain-relief solution? Neural therapy, which you can learn more about here.
