Red face teeth grinding - NTI vs custom nightguard?

hi, my name is Bob and I am a heavy grinder. Mydentalguard is good but my neighbor told me to try a NTI device? Any support for that? I can order my custom nightguard online too but am afraid as it is a lot of money - although the dentist one is also very expensive. Any help or advice is welcome!

Bob

Re: teeth grinding - NTI vs custom nightguard?

NTI's work for some people. For me, they were horrible. My jaw slid around on it and I was in bad pain. A custom guard can work well. I'd recommend seeing a functional orthodontist to get it made. I had an expensive one made by a dentist and found out years later that it may have caused my TMJ.

Good luck,
