Bruxism, an unconscious grinding and clenching of the teeth, can cause migraines, damage teeth, and contribute to temporomandibular joint disorder. The primary causes of bruxism are stress and tension.
Research indicates that 40 million Americans suffer from migraines or tension headaches. The FDA reported that 82 percent of patients professionally diagnosed with migraines experienced a 77 percent average reduction in attacks in the first eight weeks while using the NTI-tss.
Sometimes referred to as TMD, TMJ disorder is caused by overstimulation of the trigeminal nerve caused by excessive teeth occlusion. By reducing the intensity of the occlusion, the NTI-tss can relieve TMJ pain.
