Find Relief From The NTI Tension Suppression System
One of the major signs and symptoms of TMJ dysfunction is bruxism, also known as teeth grinding. While we’re not sure if bruxism causes TMJ dysfunction or is the result of it, we do know that they’re a painful combination of problems. You can find relief from your bruxism and the resulting symptoms like mouth and head pain by having an oral appliance designed just for you by Dr. Markusen.
We’re firm believers in the NTI Tension Suppression System, which is unlike any other oral appliance. You won’t get the same results from a boil-and-bite mouthguard from the drugstore. Created to fit your mouth specifically, your NTI-tss device will rest comfortably on your upper or lower front teeth and reduce the intensity of teeth grinding and clenching. You may experience a dramatic reduction in your number of migraine episodes and your TMJ pain. Studies show that 82 percent of patients saw a 77 percent reduction in migraine episodes during clinical trials!
