Bruxism and teeth grinding
Bruxism is a technical term for the unconscious habit of grinding and clenching the teeth. Depending on the duration and intensity of bruxism, severe effects can be chronic inflammation of the jaw joints, and excessive tooth wear and tooth loss, with subsequent gingivitis.

It is now known that bruxism is almost always caused by psychological tension and stressful situations. It is therefore not surprising that in our current competitive society, one in two people are already affected.
There are currently no drugs to treat bruxism. The only possibility is to reduce stress, though this is often easier said than done. Bruxism can be treated in the first instance by a dental or anti-bruxism bite, which is worn at night. Until now, custom-made bites could only be made by a dentist – a lengthy and costly procedure.
The SOLUBrux solution
