Occlusal appliances are commonly prescribed for the management of Bruxism - but they might be doing more harm than good if you have not screened for an airway issue. Dr. Aditi Desai discussed the link between airway and bruxism- could an airway problem cause bruxism? Why is it advised NOT to have a standard occlusal appliance if there is an airway issue? Did you know there are three levels of diagnosis for Sleep Bruxism? The 'Possible' Bruxist, the 'Probable' Bruxist and the 'Definite' Bruxist - in this episode Dr. Aditi Desai who also featured in PDP 139 on sleep disordered breathing and sleep apnea, will explain this and when it may be relevant to sleep apnoea.

Now, let me explain what I mean by that. Jaz's Introduction: It's underdiagnosed because every time I see a patient, right, and I say to them, 'Hey, did you know that you've got the signs of teeth grinding and clenching? Look at this wear, look at this crack or whatever.' And they all turn around and say to me, 'wow, no dentist has ever told me that before.' So in that regard, we can argue that bruxism is underdiagnosed because dentists are often sharing cases online and suggesting that the etiology of the wear that we see was bruxism. Whereas when I look at it, I see erosion and I see a restricted envelope or an envelope of function issue and perhaps there's a little bit of bruxism, but I don't think that's the primary reason of the failure. Or even sometimes people say that, 'oh, this patient keeps chipping away their class four composite or this crown has broken. I think the patients are bruxist, but really the crown fracture because the patients are bruxist or perhaps there wasn't enough occlusal reduction, right? So it's both underdiagnosed as also overdiagnosed, and it's an area that I love to read about. So I am a bruxist. Okay, confirmed bruxist. And there's three levels of diagnoses you can make in bruxism, and we cover that in this episode today called Bruxism and the Airway were Dr. Aditi Desai. She also featured, if you remember, on PDP139 on Sleep Disordered Breathing and Sleep Apnea and that kind of stuff. So talking about that, it's relevance to bruxism and for you, welcome. I just want to share with you my story and how I got into splints and TMD. It was through bruxism, like I am a massive bruxist and I rely very heavily on my occlusal applianc...
