NTI Night Guards, A Proactive Step to Preventing Migraines

Unbridled teeth clenching or teeth grinding in your sleep can lead to migraine headaches the next day. If you’re constantly waking up to headache pain in the morning, you may have a problem with night-time bruxism. NTI night guards from White Sage Dentistry, Salem, Oregon, offer a solution to migraines caused by clenching or grinding your teeth. Through the use of NTI night guards, you can find headache pain relief.

Headache Prevention through NTI Technology

NTI night guards are specifically designed to prevent teeth clenching during the night to prevent tension headaches the next day. This special mouth guard is worn over your two front teeth to keep them from clenching and grinding as you sleep. Morning migraines are just one of many symptoms of night-time bruxism. Other symptoms include:

  • Chipped, cracked, or worn-down teeth
  • Uneven edges on your front teeth where clenching occurs
  • Broken fillings
  • Jaw pain or discomfort due to clenching your jaw all night long
  • Poor sleep

Most people aren’t aware that they have a problem with bruxism until their dentist points out the symptoms. Once they’re made aware, they can take steps to manage their condition by using a night guard.

Traditional Night Guard vs. NTI Night Guard: What’s the Difference?

Traditional night guards are plastic mouthpieces that cover an entire arch of teeth. When worn over the top or bottom teeth, they form a protective barrier against the effects of tooth grinding.

NTI night guards provide the same protection but go one step further to reduce muscle activity to keep your jaw from clenching. As your muscles relax, there’s less pressure on your jaw and teeth. Releasing this pressure helps prevent tension headaches the next day. NTI night guards are smaller and less bulky to wear, making it easier for people to get used to them. If headache prevention is your goal, NTI night guards can provide the relief you need.
