Grindcare is a new biofeedback technology that, according to clinical tests, can effectively treat bruxism. Grindcare measures the movement of facial muscles during sleep through a small electrode placed on the temple. Whenever bruxism is detected, the device emits a a small electric impulse that causes relaxation of the facial muscles involved in bruxism (masseter and temporalis). Both patients and dentists can then track the effect of the treatment on a daily basis. According to studies, treatment does not affect the sleep pattern of patients. This product should be released in the United States by the end of the year. For more information, visit www.medotech.dk.
