NTI-tss Appliance and Other Bruxism Appliances
This device is fabricated to suppress jaw muscle contraction, i.e. clenching and grinding. The NTI-tss system takes advantage of the naturally protective nociceptive trigeminal inhibition reflex, which prevents the powerful temporalis muscles from contracting with full intensity. It is the protective reflex experienced when biting down, expecting something soft, but encountering something hard. In addition to preventing occluding of the canine and molar teeth (which is required to generated significant muscle contraction intensity and joint strain), this jaw-opening reflex - triggered by the NTI-tss device - protects incisors, posterior molars, surrounding tissues and the temporomandibular joints. It also helps prevent associated headaches, stiff, sore joints and muscles, and tooth sensitivity.
