Many headaches and migraines can be caused by clenching your teeth together or grinding your teeth at night!

As your upper and lower teeth touch, the muscles in your face, the joint near your ear and the sides of your forehead contract.  If this contact is too forceful or frequent the muscles can go into spasm creating headaches and jaw pain. 

Dr. Hedlund has great success with a newly FDA approved small device (NTI) that protects your mouth from grinding down and disengages these mechanisms that cause the pain.  The piece is placed in your mouth and worn when sleeping to help with the headaches and jaw pain. Let us know if you would like to find out if you are a candidate for the NTI Tension Supression System.
