While nightguards protect your teeth from grinding against one another and becoming damaged, an NTI is another solution.
An NTI is a small device that only covers your anterior teeth. Similar to a nightguard, it is made from acrylics and hard plastics. In addition to preventing the grinding of teeth, the extra benefit of the NTI is that over time, the device teaches your muscles to relax. In this way, an NTI may be able to help you break the habit of teeth grinding all together. If you are suffering from frequent migraines as well as from damaged teeth, an NTI may be the answer. Ask your Maple Grove Dental team today if an NTI is right for you.
If your child plays sports or other similar activities, mouth guards are a great way to protect their teeth from potential injury.
