Bruxism or teeth grinding happens when you grind or clench your teeth unknowingly. If you are a bruxist, you may unconsciously grind your teeth when you’re awake or during sleep. Mild bruxism may go unnoticed but severe bruxism leads to wear-off of the top surface of teeth leading to sensitivity, damaged teeth, jaw joint disorders, sleep disorders amongst other problems.
For severe bruxism, the standard of care is stress reduction, night guards with prosthetic correction. But now it is possible to incorporate the properties of the night guard into the prosthesis or artificial teeth itself, called SAPT technology. This offers a comfortable, esthetic and long term solution for such conditions.
