For the first time, the FDA has cleared for marketing a device that prevents medically diagnosed migraine pain, tension-type headache, and jaw disorders (“TMJ”), without drugs or surgery, through the reduction of the activity of the nerve controlling those muscles. The less the muscles are firing, the less tension in the jaw and surrounding area.
The NTI device snaps into place and fits comfortably on either the upper or lower front teeth. It is worn during sleep and prevents the intensity of muscular parafunction. Chronic, intense nighttime muscular parafunction has been shown to be a considerable influence on the triggering of migraine events. In clinical trials, 82% of medically diagnosed migraine patients had a 77% reduction in migraine episodes within the first eight weeks of use.
If you have any questions on how the NTI device can help, please call or text us at 801-277-1412.

I have been seeing Dr. Smith for at least the last 10 years - He and his staff are professional, friendly, and gentle - they truly are THE BEST! They always explain what is happening and give me all of my options up front. They care about my oral health and help me make the best decisions for my teeth. Getting an appointment is easy as well. The atmosphere of the office and the attitude of his team is fantastic. It's an appointment that I actually look forward to going to. Highly recommended.

Dr. Smith showed great care in my oral issues and my situation overall. He was able to do a full face scan and then lay out a plan for me. I have been needing work done for a while. Now instead of fearing the dentist we actually look forward to it. Amazing work!

KUDOS to my dentist Craig Smith. I went in Friday afternoon to get a bad tooth extracted. After muscling the tooth out, I had instant relief. NO MEDS or ANTIBIOTICS for me. I won't take them and didn't need them. There was a little discomfort, of course, after the Novocaine wore off but by the next day, I am completely back to normal. No pain! Craig R O C K S!!
