Excessive and prolonged teeth clenching or grinding is a major factor in causing head pain. Because of this the muscles in the head, neck and shoulders become distorted from excessive clenching pressure, the nerve bundles in the muscles react by causing pain. A wonderful solution to resolving this is with a small, comfortable FDA approved dental device called the NTI that is worn at night. The design of the NTI dramatically decreases clenching and or the damage from grinding. Visit www.headachehelper.com for a fuller explanation.
