If so, you’re not alone…23 million Americans suffer from migraine pain, with 44 million suffering from chronic clenching and grinding (which ultimately results in tooth damage).  But a simple little piece of plastic designed to fit on your front teeth, call the NTI-tss Plus, keeps the back teeth from meeting – which helps prevent clenching and muscle contractions.

A bonus is the wear and tear to your teeth from repeated clenching and bruxism (grinding of the teeth) is stalled during sleeping hours, when unsuspected damage can result in chips and cracks.

When you visit Timbercrest Dental Center, one of our hygienists and Dr. Luther will check your teeth for recession, wear facets, crazing and cracking; all signs of potential grinding.  You may benefit from wearing the NTI-tss Plus appliance, just like Dr. Luther.  He wears one himself and finds immense relief from fatigue and soreness in his jaw muscles upon waking each morning.

If you experience jaw fatigue, jaw soreness, cracked teeth, wear facets or crazing on your teeth, feel free to ask us about the NTI-tss Plus.

If you have any questions, give us a call at 920-659-6025.  We’ll be more than happy to answer any questions you may have!
