NTI dental splint (Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition) is designed to be placed on the anterior teeth to help patients who are diagnosed with bruxism and temporomandibular disorders, or those who suffer from tension-type headaches, facial pain, and migraines. It is designed to help reduce muscle contraction intensity, minimize joint strain, and reduce tooth wear.
NTI splint is a small, transparent dental device made from plastic, created to be placed over the front teeth during the night. When the time comes to remove it, NTI dental splint should be run in the warm water. It is classified as a partial occlusal splint.
At Pindan Dental Laboratory, we custom-create an NTI splint to fit your patient’s bite perfectly. The design also features a snap-in fit that ensures the NTI dental splint remains securely fitted through the night. The device serves to reduce clenching and negative impulses transmitted by nerves. For some patients, NTI splint shows immediate results, while others will notice the benefits after a couple of uses.
