Finding yourself in frequent pain with migraines and neck ache? Here at Boulevard Dental Practice, we believe that we have the ideal solution for your problems. From our practice in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, our expert team provide NTI Splints, believed to help in the prevention of teeth clenching and in turn alleviating you of pain.
Do you suffer from frequent migraines, head or neck ache? Wake in the morning with your face or jaw feeling stiff or aching? Find yourself constantly taking painkillers? If so then you may be suffering from Bruxism which is the clenching or grinding of teeth, causing wear or damage to the teeth along with the associated pain of the head, neck, jaw and facial muscles. This normally occurs at night, subconsciously during sleep. However, you may also be aware of doing this during the day, often when under pressure or feeling stressed. If you think this is you, then we may be able to help you, by making an NTI splint.
This is a small device worn usually at night over either your front top or lower incisors, rather like a mini gum shield. This device stops you from clenching and grinding and therefore should alleviate the problem quickly and effectively.
Please contact the surgery to arrange an appointment or ask your dentist about having a splint fitted at your next visit.
