The NTI-Tss (“Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition – Tension Suppression System”) device is an anterior bite stop that is indicated for the prevention and treatment of bruxism, temporomandibular disorders (TMDs), tension-type headaches, and migraine. We custom fabricate this appliance on the upper or lower arch and with or without a soft liner. Typical coverage is incisor to incisor, but can be made cuspid to cuspid or full arch.
