Dr. Pham can help you with certain kinds of TMD (temporomandibular joint disorders) and migraines.
An option that proves effective for TMD and migraines is a device called an NTI-Tension Suppression System. It consists of an “occlusal splint”, a small transparent plastic device which is worn over the two front teeth and prevents the contact of canines and molars.
The device, custom fitted by Dr. Pham, prevents patients from clenching or grinding their teeth while sleeping. This grinding, also called bruxing, is a primary cause of tension headaches and migraines.
Approved by the FDA, the device has been proven in studies to decrease the number and frequency of headaches without the use of drug therapies.
