Escape Chronic Jaw Pain For Good

Your temporomandibular joint – or TMJ – is a tricky body part. It attaches your jawbone to the rest of your head, and it is integral to your ability to eat and speak. But when it doesn’t function correctly, you may feel it all the way to your shoulders and back. Dr. Jack Markusen can customize an oral appliance to relieve your TMJ pain and protect you from the effects of teeth grinding. When you start wearing your oral appliance, you’ll notice a few changes right away:

  • The relief of pressure and pain on your TMJ
  • Prevention of damage to your teeth from clenching and grinding them at night
  • The reduction and even elimination of related symptoms like headaches

Why Choose for TMJ Pain & Teeth Grinding?

  • NTI Tension Suppression System Dramatically Reduces Migraine Episodes & TMJ Pain
  • Modern Invisalign® Clear Braces Treatment For Bite Repositioning
  • 40+ Years of Experience & Counting

Find Relief from The NTI Tension Suppression System


One of the major signs and symptoms of TMJ dysfunction is bruxism, which is also known as teeth grinding. While we’re not sure if bruxism causes TMJ dysfunction or is the result of it, we do know that they’re a painful combination of problems. You can find relief from bruxism and the resulting symptoms like mouth and head pain by having an oral appliance designed just for you by Dr. Markusen.

We’re firm believers in the NTI Tension Suppression System, which is unlike any other oral appliance. You won’t get the same results from a boil-and-bite mouthguard from the drugstore. Created to fit your mouth specifically, your NTI-tss device will rest comfortably on your upper or lower front teeth and reduce the intensity of teeth grinding and clenching. You may experience a dramatic reduction in your number of migraine episodes and your TMJ pain. Studies show that 82% of patients saw a 77% reduction in migraine episodes during clinical trials!
