It is hoped that an event aiming to raise awareness of tooth grinding could help to prevent emergency dentistry among its sufferers.
Bruxism Awareness Week will be held from October 25th to 31st 2010 and will provide information to people all over the UK, as well as to dentists and other healthcare practitioners.
The event is being organised by S4S, a company that produces specialist dental splits.
British dentist Dr Barry Oulton said: “Bruxism Awareness Week heralds the arrival of an increasing level of understanding in people with regards to this incredibly common yet highly destructive condition.”
For every splint S4S provides until the end of 2010, the company will also donate £1 to Help for Heroes, as service personnel suffering from anxiety also frequently have trouble with teeth grinding.
In June 2010, Dr Gill Gibson-March told the Nassau Guardian that long-term bruxism can cause the nerves to detach from teeth, eventually creating a need for emergency dentistry.
