NiteBite helps bruxing patients

Preventive and occlusal treatment device is easy to use and cost effective.   
CHERRY HILL, New Jersey--Bruxing is an issue for a large portion of the population.
More than 50 million people (one in six) in the U.S. have symptoms of bruxing. That’s why Keystone has announced NiteBite, a device that effectively treats grinding, clenching, pain, headaches, and jaw joint syndrome (TMD or TMJ). There are plenty of niteguard options. Often these devices overcorrect by opening the bite too far and they do not stop bruxism and clenching. NiteBite is different. Its design and thin construction within the freeway space helps stop people from clenching and grinding their teeth. NiteBite also can stop symptoms, such as headaches and tooth and jaw pain. This proprietary, patented, and FDA-cleared device is the first biteguard that functions within the patient's Freeway Space--the distance between the physiological rest position and the first point of contact of the upper and lower teeth. NiteBite uses the jaw's natural proprioceptive response to trigger the jaw-opening reflex. As the lower teeth approach contact with the NiteBite, the jaw-opening reflex returns the lower jaw to the physiological rest position where no teeth touch each other or the NiteBite. The muscles relax and NiteBite effectively relieves jaw, head and neck pain, and associated symptoms of TMJ disorder. Not only does the device work physiologically and simply, but it’s also easy to mold to the patient’s bite. In less than five minutes, a dentist or hygienist can heat the device and shape it to the patient’s front teeth. Then the patient is ready to go home with a new NiteBite.Key Features • Helps stop bruxing and clenching • FDA cleared for use by dental professionals • Inserts, molds, and fits in five minutes • No second patient visit • No lab time or expense • Custom fit for each user (in office) • Easy to fit and comfortable to wear • Safe and easy to use • Clinically proven to be effective • Most profitable occlusal appliance on the market • Little or no adjustment is needed • Prevents TMJ/TMD syndrome • Relieves chronic tension and pain within the head, jaw, and neck neuromuscular system • Available through a distributor
