Dental services: Cosmetic dentistry & NTI-TSS Downey CA
If you have been told that you snore, or if you frequently wake up with a stiff neck, sensitive teeth, and gums, or jaw pain, NTI-TSS may be able to help you. This recent advancement in dental technology can also help if you suffer from morning headaches or tension headaches.
Teeth grinding while you sleep
While you are asleep, your jaw muscles can clinch with a powerful force far beyond your usual bite. This may cause you to grind your teeth, causing neck tension, soreness in the jaw, and pain or sensitivity in the teeth and gums. This involuntary reaction prevents the tongue from relaxing properly in your mouth while you sleep, leading it to fall back into the throat, which results in snoring. The NTI-TSS device prevents your teeth from closing tightly, which alleviates all of these issues.
Has the NTI-tss device been tested?
Thousands of dental patients across America have successfully used the NTI-TSS device, and it has been given full approval by the FDA for marketing. The NTI-TSS device has undergone rigorous safety tests to ensure that it is completely compliant with all FDA requirements and regulations.
What is NTI-tss?
The NTI-TSS is a small, clear, plastic device that fits over the two top front teeth. This positioning makes it almost impossible for the jaw to clench tightly while you sleep. When worn over time, the device trains the muscles, naturally suppressing the body’s clenching reflex. When issues such as snoring, headaches, and pain in the neck or jaw are caused by this reflex, they can begin to disappear in as little as a few nights.
How does NTI-tss differ from traditional night guards and TMJ splints?
Night guards and TMJ splints can still allow your jaw to become clenched while you’re sleeping. They aren’t designed to keep your teeth apart, but instead to give you a smooth surface to bite down on. This keeps your teeth from being damaged when they slide against each other. Unfortunately, recent studies have found that traditional night guards and TMJ splints may increase your natural bite reflex far beyond normal, making it more likely you will experience other problems. The NTI-TSS device prevents your back teeth from clenching at all and then trains your muscles to reject their natural clenching reflex while you’re sleeping. This eliminates the pain caused by the sliding and clenching of the teeth while you sleep.
How soon will the NTI-tss device provide relief?
For minor issues related to teeth grinding, the NTI-TSS device may provide results the first time you use it. This is true of issues such as snoring and morning jaw pain or soreness. More severe issues may take longer, up to a month, to achieve any noticeable results. Still, it is important that you continue to wear the device as the time it takes to achieve relief will vary from patient to patient.
What other benefits can I expect from the NTI-tss device?
The NTI-TSS device can eliminate or significantly reduce the need for a prescription or over-the-counter medications in patients that experience neck and jaw pain from teeth grinding. This can positively impact your overall health, particularly your kidneys, digestive system, and liver. It can also help to reduce your stress levels and increase your overall quality of life.
