When You Wake Up, Do You Feel Fabulous?
The most important migraines happen first thing in the morning between 5 a.m. – 8 a.m. “Teeth grinding” was once thought to be a contributing cause of migraines, but medical research rejected the concept as patients simply clenched harder on their traditional protective mouthpieces than if they didn’t have one, resulting in either no change or a worsening of their symptoms.
A new patented design of a mouthpiece, called an NTI, has been FDA cleared for a prevention of migraine pain and jaw disorders. Unlike the traditional “full coverage” mouthpieces that allow for >100% of jaw clenching intensity, the NTI provides front incisor teeth contact only when biting down, thereby limiting clenching intensity to 30% while preventing TMI strain.
Published studies have shown the NTI’s proficiency at preventing migraine pain as well as TMJ disorders.
If you or someone you know experiences frequent headaches or migraine pain, or unresolved jaw disorders, speak with us today to confirm (or rule out) if nocturnal jaw-clenching might be playing an influential role in causing frequent headache, migraine pain or jaw disorders.
