Preventive Intervention For Bruxism
AGD Subject Code(s): 185 CE credits: 2 Cost: $49.00

Bruxism is a parafunctional occlusal activity, that may exist as either sleep bruxism or awake bruxism. Bruxers have more noticeable signs of dental attrition, abfractions, and occlusal pits on their natural teeth than other patients. Clinical approaches to managing bruxism can be categorized as acute, preventive and chronic, with the approach depending on the patient’s signs and symptoms. Preventive intervention is required if a patient presents with tooth wear. A primary preventive approach in the treatment of bruxism is the fabrication and utilization of a nightguard.
