With the NTI Tension Suppression System, migraine therapy is an effective solution that allows you to live a life free from constant pain and discomfort. Keep reading to learn more about this innovative system and why it might be the treatment you’ve been looking for.

What Are Migraines?

Migraines are a type of headache characterized by severe throbbing pain on one or both sides of the head. They can last for hours or even days and can be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines are often caused by muscle tension related to TMJ Disorder, a condition that affects the jaw joint and teeth grinding, or bruxism. Fortunately, the NTI Tension Suppression System helps to address these issues for lasting migraine relief.

What Is the NTI Tension Suppression System?

The NTI Tension Suppression System (NTI) is a small mouthguard-like device that is custom-fitted to your front teeth. This system is designed to suppress the parafunctional muscle contractions that can trigger migraines, meaning you won’t feel as much tension or pain during the day. This simple, non-intrusive solution also protects your teeth from the damage that can result from clenching and grinding.

NTI Migraine Therapy: How It Works

The NTI Tension Suppression System works by placing the device over your front teeth, where it reduces the intensity of the muscle contractions that cause migraines. This allows for the reduction in the frequency and severity of migraines caused by bruxism and TMJ issues. Over time this treatment leads to less pain and a better quality of life.

Receiving migraine therapy with the NTI Tension Suppression System can provide you with various benefits for you and your health that other treatments can’t. Some of the advantages you’ll be able to enjoy include:

The NTI Migraine Therapy Process

Initial Consultation

The first step in the process of receiving migraine therapy with the NTI Tension Suppression System is to schedule an initial consultation with your Sharon TMJ dentist, Dr. Agamov. During this appointment, she will evaluate your medical and dental history and perform a thorough examination of your teeth and jaw. This will help her determine if you are a good candidate for this type of therapy. Your initial consultation is a great time to ask any questions you may have.

Custom-Design of the Device

Once it has been determined that you are a good candidate for migraine therapy with the NTI Tension Suppression System, Dr. Agamov will take an impression of your teeth to create a custom-fitted device. This is painless and takes just a few minutes. The design process will ensure that your oral appliance is fitted with your smile’s unique characteristics in mind.

Fitting of the Device

Once your device has been created, you’ll return to our Sharon dental office so that Dr. Agamov can ensure that the device fits properly. She will also provide you with detailed instructions on how to wear it and care for it so that you can make the most of this oral appliance.

Follow-Up Appointments

Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your progress and ensure that the device is functioning properly. Adjustments may need to be made over time to ensure the best possible results. Be sure to let your TMJ dentist know if you’re noticing any reduction in symptoms to help make sure that your treatment is working.

Frequently Asked Questions

It can take a few weeks to see results, but many patients report a reduction in the frequency and severity of their migraines within a few days of wearing the device. Your dentist will be able to answer any questions you may have about the NTI Tension Suppression System. It may take shorter or longer to notice a reduction of symptoms based on your unique case.

It is recommended that the device be worn at night when muscle tension is at its highest. However, it can be worn during the day if needed. Your dentist will let you know if it’s necessary to wear it during the day while you’re visiting for your initial consultation.

It is normal to experience some minor discomfort during the first few days of wearing the NTI Tension Suppression System. However, as you get used to the device, your smile will adjust and you won’t feel any discomfort. The device is designed to fit snugly on the upper or lower front teeth, and should not affect speech in any significant way. If you experience any discomfort or difficulty speaking, please contact your dentist, for further evaluation and adjustments to the device if necessary.

In many cases, the NTI Tension Suppression System is covered by dental insurance as a treatment for migraine therapy. However, it’s important to check with your specific insurance provider to confirm their coverage policy. Your dental office can also help verify insurance coverage and provide assistance with any necessary paperwork. Talk to your dentist about financing if you’re uninsured or underinsured.
