Yes! If the dental pain is from grinding your teeth!
Grinding and clenching teeth often occurs during times of personal stress. For many people, the first symptom of teeth grinding is a headache or pain in the jaw. Grinding and clenching can also cause destruction of the enamel of the teeth which over time can lead to significant loss of tooth structure. Most people are not aware of the damage since grinding does not cause visible cavities in the teeth. Nighttime clenching is more subtle than grinding and often results in cracked or fractured back teeth.
A nightguard, such as the NTI device, is often the first treatment for grinding and clenching. The NTI attaches to your front two teeth and prevents the back teeth from touching which suppresses clenching and allows the jaw muscles and joints to relax and heal. Since the teeth do not have direct contact, teeth do not get worn down.
The NTI is easy to wear and is custom made in just one visit to the Greenbelt or Millersville Maryland offices of McCarl Dental Group https://www.mccarldental.com/locations.html. Many of our patients experience relief from jaw discomfort in a few days.
