If you grind your teeth or clench your jaws together it has been suggested that this can act as a trigger for headaches, particularly tension type headaches and even migraine. You may subconsciously clench your jaw during the day and even in your sleep. If you are experiencing these pains, Dr. Robert Ruyak, DMD can provide you with an FDA-approved NTI mouth guard device.
THE NTI device decreases the strength of tooth clenching by triggering a nerve reflex that relaxes the muscles, and at the same time prevents the molars from touching. This helps the patient by stopping unconscious forceful clenching and biting, preventing common consequences such as worn out teeth and jaw pain, as well as inflammation and tension headaches. NTI night guards are not available over the counter, and have to be custom fitted by Dr. Robert Ruyak, DMD. It is inexpensive and painless to insert and can only provide you with excellent relief.
If you have questions about our NTI night guard, give us a call to discuss the pros and cons or visit www.drrobertruyak.com for more information. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Robert Ruyak, DMD at his practice in Bethlehem, PA, call 610-861-0777.
