My local dentist, who is not only a dentist, but also a facial-cranial pain specialist, checked me out and said that the NTI device would not help me. He spent about an hour checking me out, muscles, x-rays, and etc. He said that if I wanted to try one, he would make one for me, but he thought that it would not help me. He then recommended that I see the neuromuscular therapist he sees for his bum knee. He is old rugby player, who had a few knee operations that went bad.

His percentages of migraine patients that were helped, seems to be rather high. But, it may be that percentage of patients that were helped, were previously diagnosed with TMJ problems, before trying out the device. That may account for the high percentage.

No magic bullet for me.

NTI

Pen,

I had forgotten all about this. My dentist made a temporary one for me to see if I would benefit from it before I invested the money for a permanent one. It was considerably helpful for face and jaw pain. Helped me relax at night, and cut down on the migraines. I didn't go ahead and buy one because of the money. My insurance won't pay for it and I can't afford to pay all cash.

If I can do OK with the tabasco sauce, which is cheap, and the occasional Maxalt. I already have so many medical & dental bills, student loans, house payments, etc. that I can't keep shelling out money for the damn migraines. Even when doing so could help me in the long run. It's not that I'm just reluctant to spend the money. I flat don't have it.

But enough about me. If you can get a temporary NTI from your dentist, it's definitely worth a try.

Pen - I actually used this and bought one for my daughter also. I don't think it was fitted properly because it gave me more jaw pain! It didn't help the headaches for either of us. My denitist didn't think it was a good idea to bring all the force on the front teeth. Anyway, it cost me around $400, $800 for the two of us and it was worthless. When I say I have tried just about everything, I really have. But I feel like the voice of doom and gloom since nothing has worked. I would think it's worked for some people or they couldn't make the claims.....just not for me.
