Migraine Appliances (NTI-tss)
Dr. De Souza offers the NTI-tss appliance which has been shown to reduce the incidence and severity of medically diagnosed migraine headaches. Pioneered by an American dentist and migraine sufferer, Dr. Jim Boyd invented the appliance to take advantage of your body’s protective reflex to drastically reduce the activity of the powerful jaw closing muscles. Chronic hyper-contraction of these muscles leaves them susceptible to the triggers which initiate migraines. The NTI-tss (tension suppression system) activates a reflex causing a sharp drop in muscle activity thereby reducing the hyper-contraction and the tendency to trigger headaches.
