Migraine & Tension Headache Relief
When you wake up, do you feel fabulous? This may seem like a frivolous question to migraine or tension headache sufferers. Of course they don’t. This is because they are clenching and/or grinding their teeth during sleep. Clenching and grinding during sleep is one of the major causes of migraine headaches This constant activity of the muscles during sleep results in the muscles of the head and neck to be fatigued and triggering the nerves that support these muscles to be hyperactive. This, in turn, leads to migraines and tension headaches.
WinningSmiles is proud to provide the NTI device for the prevention and relief of migraine headaches. NTI stands for Nociceptive (relating to the perception of things that could be harmful); Trigeminal (the nerve that controls the major muscle of chewing); Inhibition. Basically, the NTI device is a small, removable piece of dense plastic that is custom fit to your upper or lower front teeth by your dentist. It is worn mostly at night or during the day if symptoms persist. The device helps prevent the intense contraction of the chewing muscles during sleep. In clinical trials, 82% of medically diagnosed migraine patients had a 77% reduction in migraine episodes within the first eight weeks of use.
