The recently invented Nocioceptive Trigeminal Inhibition Tension Suppresion Technique (NTI-tss) or NTI is a multipurpose appliance that is gaining recognition as a treatment modality in TMD. It was initially designed as therapy for bruxism and TMJ related headaches and pain, occlusal trauma and tension type headaches and / or migraine, It is made to shield teeth, muscles and joints by suppressing parafunctional muscle contraction by allmost 70%. This appliance claims to be the most successful FDA approved therapy of migraine prevention. Nevertheless far more reports need to be carried out to help its claims that it is a superior alternative to full coverage bite guards.

The NTI-tss is a small, custom fitted appliance that fits on the front teeth which enables only the central incisors to speak to. This appliance may possibly be purchased prefabricated and retrofit on the patient, or laboratory fabricated NTI-tss plus. This miniature anterior bite appliance is normally worn during the night though a daytime appliance is currently obtainable.
