Teeth Grinding and TMJ

Teeth grinding and TMJ

Are you grinding your teeth at night? Do you suffer from migraine headaches, sore jaw, stiff neck, or sensitive teeth? You are not alone! 44 million people in the U.S. suffer from chronic clenching and grinding resulting in tooth damage. The doctors at The Centre for Contemporary Dental Concepts can easily and effectively prevent occlusal trauma to root canals, dental implants, and cosmetic dentistry. Also, we can give you relief from the never-ending pain from migraine or tension headaches. The magic bullet has been found ~ the NTI!

The NTI has recently gained FDA approval for treatment of migraine or tension headaches. This allows patients to use their medical insurance for financial coverage. Used only at night, this tiny appliance fits over your 2 front teeth prevents the grinding, eliminates the headaches etc., and best of all, can be custom made at your next appointment. Give us a call and let us make your day (and night).

Another approach we use is the conventional night guard. This device when made properly will give you a better night of rest while protecting your teeth, joint, and muscles of the face. You will awaken feeling more fresh and without the headache in the morning.
