The NTI is a small prefabricated polycarbonate matrix that snaps into place and fits comfortably on either the upper or lower front teeth. It is worn during sleep, and controls night clenching and grinding. Dr. Tyl & Dr. Fogarty provide customized NTIs for patients in the Princeton area. The NTI Tension Suppression System is the only non-drug, non surgical device cleared by the FDA for prevention of medically diagnosed migraine pain and jaw disorders through the reduction of trigeminally innervated muscular activity.
Approximately 23 million Americans suffer from tension headaches. 82% of migraine patients showed 77% decrease in migraine frequency within the first 8 weeks of use. In addition to migraine headaches, NTIs are also used for the prevention of bruxism and TMJ syndrome.
