Occlusal or Bite Problems
Occlusion (the way one bites) is an extremely important factor in determining the life of the dentition and the health of the TMJ (jaw joint) and muscles.
An untreated problem can lead to jaw spasm/pain neck ache and postural changes.
If you have been medically diagnosed as suffering from migraines, fitting an SCI is a drug-free treatment that can eliminate migraine and tension headaches.
Migraine sufferers typically contract their temporalis muscles (at the sides of the skull) 14 times more intensely during sleep than non-sufferers. The SCI is a small, removable device that is custom-fitted to the patient’s front teeth to suppress the contraction of these muscles by preventing contact between the back teeth.
