NTI Bite Guard VS Occlusal Guards?

I am curious on anyone who uses or recommends the NTI guards VS a traditional night guard? How does it differ in regards to patient comfort during wearing it and pain relief?

I’ve never used an NTI. I do know that most professionals like the occlusal guard because all the teeth are protected and all the teeth are in contact. I’ve read articles on NTI and causing discomfort, chipping teeth, etc….. But again I do not have personal knowledge about NTI or know the benefits compared to an occlusal guard.

My doctor will go with a NTI first, then if the patient isn’t responding will go to a full occlusal guard. I’m thinking about getting both for myself so I have personal experience with both, I just have yet to do so!
