The Problem

Bruxism is challenging to diagnose before patients have damaged their teeth

Because of this challenge, 90 percent of bruxism disorders go undiagnosed and patients remain in pain and discomfort.

The Solution



  • Data-driven and A.I.-powered home-based bruxism assessments
  • Headband mounted sensors track activity of the temporalis muscle caused by the clenching and grinding behaviors associated with bruxism
  • Reports are delivered instantly to a secure, HIPAA-compliant app and web portal where they can be accessed by both clinicians and patients
  • A typical analysis involves 3 nights of data which can be used to convince the patient of the need for an appliance or other remedy
  • Beyond wear on the dentition, bruxing patients can suffer from migraines, headaches, vertigo, tinnitus, neck pain and jaw pain
  • The headband is unobtrusive to make wearing the sensor comfortable
