If you suffer from…
* teeth grinding
* headaches or migraines
* chronic earaches
* pain in your head, neck, or shoulders
* inability to fully open and close your mouth
* clicking jaws
* ringing in your ears
* clenching or grinding teeth
* numbness in hands and fingers
* postural problems
…your temporomandibular joints (TMJs) may be misaligned. Even slight misalignment of the TMJ s can cause these and other symptoms that affect your quality of life and oral health. Nerves and muscles become irritated, which causes pain and involuntary teeth grinding, often while a person sleeps. By addressing the source of the problem, the misaligned joints, Dr. Duke may solve your problem and ease your pain.
When you visit us, DR Klein will analyze your entire chewing system and correct the position of your TMJs to produce total mouth harmony.
Tooth Grinding and Clenching
Bruxism, an unconscious grinding and clenching of the teeth, can cause migraines, damage teeth, and contribute to temporomandibular dysfunction. The primary causes of bruxism are stress and tension. Dentists have found that the NTI-tss can prevent clinching and grinding.
Research indicates that 40 million Americans suffer from migraines or tension headaches. The FDA reported that 82 percent of patients professionally diagnosed with migraines e xperienced a 77 percent average reduction in attacks in the first eight weeks while using the NTI-tss.
Sometimes referred to as TMD, TMJ dysfunction is caused by over stimulation of the trigeminal nerve caused by excessive teeth occlusion. By reducing the intensity of the occlusion, the NTI-tss can relieve TMJ pain.
Once identified, we can often treat tooth grinding and clenching, migraines, or TMJ dysfunction with a revolutionary little acrylic mouthpiece. The estimate for people fitted with the mouthpiece has exceeded 2.25 million throughout the world, and they all thank Dr. Jim Boyd for his invention. Dr. Boyd and his wife, migraine sufferers, were the first two patients to wear the device. Since it relieved their migraine pain, it’s helped millions, and it can help you as well.
If you suffer from bruxism, migraines, or TMJ pain, you deserve relief!
