Dr. Gardener recommended that I use a NTI as I was found to be grinding my teeth. After initial scepticism, I am thrilled with the outcome; with the result that I have almost no headaches after suffering with them regularly.

We can create custom-made gum shields, mouth guards and splints to fit your mouth perfectly. These products can be used for a variety of reasons, from protecting your teeth when playing contact sports, to relieving snoring and helping sufferers of Bruxism.

Bruxism – tooth clenching and or grinding – is a condition that affects more than 10 million adults in the UK. It is often stress related and is the main cause of tooth wear and breakage, disorders of the jaw (pain and limited movement) and headaches and migraines.

Mouth Guards

Signs that someone could be suffering from the condition can include:

  • waking up with a headache, earache, jaw or facial pain that eases during the day
  • signs of wear and tear of the teeth
  • increased tooth sensitivity, flattening, cracks or broken fillings
  • neck, shoulder and back pain
  • disrupted sleep.

But help is available. Please don't suffer in silence – talk to us about specialist splints and mouth guards that can be custom-made to relieve the symptoms. With some very simple steps we can help you by reducing or even eliminating the pain, without the need for any medication.
