Migraine Relief Devices
Migraine headache prevention is intended to reduce the suffering and disability associated with attacks. One method of prevention involves using a dental device to help reduce the intensity and the amount of jaw muscle activity. One particular device that has received attention recently is called the NTI-tss (Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition-tension suppression system).
he NTI is a prefabricated device that covers the upper four front teeth. It is sold to dentists in a kit form, and the dentist then fits it to the individual patient's teeth. It is similar to other dental devices that have been used since the 1950s.
There is some evidence that this device can be effective for treating migraines when used in the right circumstances. The research quoted shows that the NTI-tss device is at least as effective in reducing the incidence of migraine as some other commonly used intraoral devices that have been tested

In 2008, on a routine visit to see Dr. Samuelson, he discovered a spot on my lip. He discovered this during his routine oral cancer screening exam. On further examination the spot was determined to be malignant. I had the spot removed by my Dermatologist. The Dermatologist stated, if not detected, this would have entered my lymph system.
