Bruxing is not a single disorder with a single treatment. You will learn how to differentiate between patients who grind their teeth, those who clench, and whether the parafunction is occurring in the day or night. You will learn several different therapies and appliances to address each of these very different diseases. You will learn to identify and treat patients who grind their teeth who also have a sleep airway issue that needs to be addressed.
