Dental Visits and the NTI Device 

More than 40 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches and many sufferers don't know that a visit to the dentist may be the best way to treat a migraine.

Migraines are a major problem because they make people unable to function and accomplish the most basic of tasks.  Medication helps but it doesn't completely eradicate the problem.

That's why dentists have seen an increase in the number of patients visiting them with bruxism symptoms.  Migraines can sometimes stem from teeth grinding because the act of the teeth clenching adds unnecessary pressure to the jawbone and other facial structures.

It's possible for bruxism to be cured by wearing specially made devices like gums shields. This way there will be no contact between tooth surfaces while the person is sleeping.

Although many people never experience migraines around 75 % of people encounter some type of bruxism in their life.  Bruxism may also develop if a person is dealing with various types of stress.

Regular dental visits can curb problems like bruxism and can help in the treatment of migraines.

You may be grinding and clenching your teeth at night and never notice it...that is until the wear appears on your teeth!  Have you noticed your teeth are getting shorter, developed hairline fractures, or found you've chipped off a filling?  How about awaking to severe jaw, or tooth pain for no apparent reason?  Night guards help protect your teeth from further damage.  

Is Snoring a Problem?

The TAP® (Thornton Adjustable Positioner) is based on the same principle as that of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).  The airway must be opened to allow air to pass through the throat.  A constricted or collapsed airway causes snoring or sleep apnea. The TAP anti-snoring device holds the lower jaw in a forward position so that it does not fall open during the night and cause the airway to collapse.  It maintains a clear airway to reduce snoring and improve breathing.

The TAP anti-snoring device is comfortable and custom-made to prevent any change in teeth position or mouth structure.  It is patient-adjustable, allowing for maximum comfort and effectiveness.
