TMJ Treatment and Night Guards:

A night guard is a custom-made acrylic mouth guard that protects teeth and deprograms patients from clenching and grinding. While traditional night guards where bulky and often “tight” on teeth, recent advances in dental technology have resulted in more comfortable
less bulky counterparts.

Our office employs NTI (Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition Tension Supprresion System) night guards, which are custom fit to your mouth and fabricated in our office in as little as 20-30 minutes. NTI ’s fit over the front (usually upper) 4 to 6 teeth and protect the whole mouth from clenching and grinding. NTI ‘s can eliminate painful, aching jaws, sore sensitive teeth, receding gums, stiff neck, and tension and morning headaches.
