NTI-tss Plus™ for Migraine/Headache Relief
The NTI-tss Plus™ device is a FDA cleared non-drug, non-surgical method of migraine prevention. The NTI-tss Plus™ is a mouth appliance originally developed to prevent migraine pain. This custom fit appliance gives Dr. Caudillo a way to effectively treat patients suffering from frequent headaches or migraines. The small night guard fits over the lower or upper front teeth only and keeps the back teeth apart to minimize the intensity of clenching and grinding.
The NTI-tss Plus™ is the treatment of choice by Dr. Caudillo for long-lasting relief of Myofascial Pain Syndrome. Myofascial Pain Syndrome is characterized by chronic pain caused by sensitive points in the muscles. It is caused by tension, fatigue, or spasm in muscles functioning during chewing. The muscle spasms causing the pain usually result from night-time grinding or clenching of teeth. Common symptoms that are relieved by the NTI-tss Plus™ appliance are:
- tension headaches
- aching jaw
- stiff neck and shoulders
The appliance is fabricated by a dental laboratory after Dr. Caudillo takes impressions of your teeth and some simple measurements. It is then delivered and a follow-up appointment is completed to determine its effectiveness. Our office can help you determine insurance coverage for the appliance.
