About Ortho-Stop and How it Works
When you clench and grind your teeth at night, each tooth sends electrical signals to the central nervous system, then the brain, and last, to the chewing muscles of the jaw. Studies have shown that humans clench and grind 2-6 hours nightly. Intensity is the only variable. Humans have been measured up to 900 PSI (pounds per square inch). Eating is only 68 PSI.
As you can see, the muscles of the jaw are simply overworked at night. Stop the muscle use and “TMJ” symptoms dramatically improve. With less electrical firings to the brain, the muscles relax and the brain isn’t being bombarded. Therefore the brain can achieve longer REM sleep cycles and the health benefits that go with it.
Ortho-Stop prevents the back teeth from making contact so that there are minimal firings. If you can’t make contact, the teeth can’t fire. The muscles relax and you sleep sounder. A night guard is minimally effective because the back teeth do contact. Ortho-Stop is scientifically sound. There are many areas as you will see in the drop-downs that Ortho-Stop will assist in contributing to positive results.
