Do you need relief from tension or migraine headaches, sore teeth, aching jaws or morning headaches?
These are often symptoms that someone with TMJ may have. TMJ is a term that is often used to describe facial pain.
If you have tension/migraine headaches or sore teeth and jaw, this could be caused by “clenching” your teeth while sleeping. This clenching at night can cause painful morning headaches, cracked teeth, and sore muscles in the face, neck and back.
Now Philadelphia Dentistry can provide you with the only FDA approved dental device that fights migraine headaches without surgery.
The dental device is called an “NTI.” The NTI works by reducing the force of the clenching. By minimizing the source of the pain, relief is usually seen in a few days. By wearing the NTI when you sleep at night, resolution of headaches, neck pain, sore jaws and related pain can occur.
This dental device is very small and the cost is $247.
There are some patients who do more grinding versus clenching and are better served with a custom nightguard which we professionally make in our lab. We discourage patients from trying an “over-the-counter” nightguard because they can actually cause you more harm than good. An improperly made nightguard may damage your joint, cause facial pain or increase headaches. Dr. Cirka or Dr. Meier will see exactly what will work to help you with your symptoms. A custom made professional nightguard in our office is priced at $427. This is around half the fee many dentists charge within a one-block radius from our office.
Wearing either an NTI or a nightguard usually provides relief between one and six weeks of night-time wear.
In Philadelphia, Dr. Cirka and Dr. Meier have treated thousands of dental patients who suffer with migraines and worn teeth. You may find that with regular use of your NTI or nightguard, you’ll be more productive throughout the day because your pain is reduced and you feel more comfortable with less tension and stress.
