Dental Care and Your Heart

If you have heart disease or a special heart condition, taking good care of your teeth and gums is important not only for your smile, but for your heart as well. Depending on your medical history, your dentist or physician may recommend that you take special steps at home and before dental visits. Please inform us of any heart ailments or changes in your health prior to your dental appointment.

Drug free pain relief

Did you know that the intensity of nighttime jaw clenching can lead to persistent migraine pain and chronic headaches? That's the principle behind the newest and perhaps only preventive weapon in the war against migraine and tension headaches-a tiny, one-inch device fit over your two front teeth and worn during sleep. To date, over 500,000 people have used the device to quell both the intensity and frequency of migraine headaches on every continent in the world. Twenty-three million Americans suffer from severe migraine pain with the associated loss of productivity estimated at $17.2 billion yearly.

Developed by Dr. James Boyd, a dentist and long time migraine sufferer, the new mouth guard called the Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition Tension Suppression System, or NTI-tss, is as surprisingly simple as it is effective: 82% of migraine and headache sufferers who use the device experience an average 77% reduction of migraine pain attacks within two months. The devise is easily fit by Dr. Mosher, involves no surgery, and has no risk of side effects compared to pharmaceutical migraine treatments.
