Introduction – Bruxism

Bruxism, a common condition seen in adults, is becoming more prevalent in adolescents and children.1 This course will provide information for the dental healthcare team on the common causes, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of this condition. Early treatment can help prevent acute pain and, in severe cases, chronic pain, periodontal involvement and possible tooth loss.2 Educating the patient on bruxism and the importance of maintaining a healthy oral environment will also be covered.
