Available Treatments for Bruxism
Dr. Carey offers splint therapy, commonly referred to as treatment with night guards. Night guards typically prevent contact between the upper and lower teeth, removing the ability to grind your teeth together. Night guards are custom fitted for increased comfort and efficacy.
Another excellent treatment is the Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition Tension Suppression System (NTI-TSS). The NTI-TSS is comprised of a small plastic device that was originally designed to prevent chronic headaches and migraines caused by teeth clenching and grinding. NTI-TSS relaxes the muscles involved in bruxism, thereby preventing such headaches.
