The Daily Grind – An Update on the Management of Bruxism

Bruxism is a common clinical condition that remains a difficult diagnostic and management problem for the prosthodontist. Not only can bruxism result in the destruction of dental tissues, it also imperils the restorations that are placed to repair the damage. Routine diagnosis of bruxism largely depends on clinical indicators that have questionable predictive value; management relies on the cooperation of patients in wearing protective splints. This presentation will review current thinking on the etiology, diagnosis and management of bruxism in prosthodontic patients. We will explore new technologies that may assist prosthodontists and patients in understanding bruxism.
