To date, there has been no treatment able to cure bruxism. Medical treatments, based on plants or relaxation, have not proven effective. That is why dental medecine has preferred to reduce the damage created by night-time grinding of the teeth by using what is called a « dental bite ».
It is a light device which is inserted at night between the jaws in such a manner as to protect the teeth and re-align them. This reduces the muscular tension between the jaws and the stress exerted on gum tissue.
For the « dental bites » to be effective they must be made of a material that is softer than the teeth and which can be perfectly adjusted to the patient’s teeth. In the past, they had to be made to measure by a dentist, which is a long and costly procedure.
Today a solution exists which is quick, effective and inexpensive. The result of collaboration between dentists and university departments, the SOLUBrux dental bite to prevent teeth grinding can be adapted simply and in just a few minutes to an individual’s teeth and for a fraction of the price of a bite made by a dentist.
