TMJ refers to a condition where you experience pain due to a series of possible jaw issues. At Woodruff Family Dental, if Dr. Tim Woodruff, Dr. Randy Woodruff, and Dr. Robert Kaloghirou suspect that you suffer from TMJ, they may suggest specific TMJ treatment or an NTI splint. Both options are used to help ease the side effects of TMJ and bring you more comfort. For more information about TMJ or NTI splits in Jonesboro, Arkansas, or to schedule a consultation with our dentists, please contact our office at 870-972-8190.
NTI is a splint used to treat TMJ disorder or Bruxism. Both of these disorders can cause immense pain in the jaw, or headaches. To help treat either of these conditions, our dentist may recommend an NTI splint. NTI is a type of mouth guard that fits along the bottom incisors, creating a barrier between your upper and lower teeth that prevents you from clenching your teeth. It is made of a clear, rubbery material, which makes it both comfortable and discreet. Most often, you will wear an NTI guard while you sleep. Our dentist will determine how long you will need to use an NTI splint. If you suffer from headaches or pain as a result of TMJ or Bruxism, we invite you to contact us today and set up a consultation with our dentist.
