The Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition Tension Suppression System (NTI-tss) is a unique, miniature mouth guard that fits over the front teeth, reducing the intensity of jaw-clenching during sleep and the migraine/headache pain that comes along with it.

The FDA approved the device after a clinical trial in which, on patients who averaged two migraines a month, 82 percent of the patients reported a 77 percent average reduction in their migraine frequency.


What does clenching my teeth have to do with these problems? 

The high-intensity contractions of these powerful muscles become painful and the forces generated cause pain to surrounding tissues, joints, and other muscles. By reducing the intensity of the clenching, you’re effectively minimizing the source of the pain—in many cases, in just a few days. 

Has this treatment been tested?
The NTI-tss® device has been used successfully with thousands of patients in
the United States and many other countries. It has received marketing allowance from
the FDA and complies with all requirements as an approved dental device.

What else can I expect? 

The NTI-tss device may eliminate the need for prescription and over-the-counter pain
medications that you take for morning headache, sore neck, sore jaw, and related
pain associated with involuntary clenching of the teeth. Because the NTI-tss device helps reduce the intensity of your clenching, it helps maximize your comfort and should minimize your need for medications. You may find that you’re more productive and that you can do more throughout the day because you’re pain free and more comfortable with less tension and stress. 

How does this devise work?

The NTI is a custom-fitted device that PREVENTS the tooth surfaces from ever coming into intense contact. By preventing high-intensity contact, you also eliminate high-intensity clenching and the muscular irritation that leads to migraine pain, TMJ, and chronic headache.

Can all patients who suffer from migraines be helped by this device?

Having worked with this device for well over a decade I have personally seen relief achieved in over 90% of the patients that I have treated. Years of practice in evaluation and custom fabrication of the NTI have taught me "screen" migraine patients so that I am now able to accurately determine which patients may only experience a minimal benefit. Hence my confidence in my money back guarantee. Clinical trials have proven that 82% of migraine sufferers(fyi: the trial included patients that suffered 2 or more migraines a month) had a 77% average reduction of migraine headaches.

My physician tells me that my monthly migraine headache is "hormonal". Can this device help me?

Yes! I have seen benefits similar to all migraine sufferers. I like to "illustrate" what triggers a migraine as this. The Intense nighttime clenching of a migraine sufferer produce an excess of toxins in the temporalis muscles. These toxins build up in these muscles and go into a "Migraine Bucket". When this "bucket" get full and OVERFLOWS------- headaches/migraine headaches happen! In many women, this "bucket" fills throughout the month(due to intense clenching) and finally overflows due to the increased stress which occurs during the hormonal changes that happen monthly.
