Grinding and clenching (bruxism) are dental concerns that are on the rise in the West, partly attributed to the increased pace of life and resulting stress.
After multiple reports showing a marked rise of cases during and following the COVID-related lockdown, we invite Dr Barry Glassman - a passionate and renowned expert on chronic pain and joint dysfunction - to help us better understand bruxism. Including the role that we, as dental professionals, have in helping to minimise the potential damage and protecting our patients, this is a great mini-series better understand grinding, clenching, and parafunction in your patients.
This short course - part of the S4S 'In 4' Mini-Series - covers:
- What is bruxism, why do we brux, and how important parafunction is
- How lifestyle changes may help reduce bruxing
- Splint options to protect our patients.
