Understanding Bruxism Current Knowledge and Practice
Bruxism is one of the "diseases" of the XXI century and acknowledgment of its destructive nature in the last fifteen years highlighted the hesitations of the profession and the questions of patients. Since the first book dedicated to bruxism, knowledge has rapidly improved to define today different types of bruxism in what used to appear as an "unmanageable" phenomenon. Thanks to a better understanding of bruxism during the last decade, the treatment of patients with bruxism is not only more conservative but also dental practitioners can consider diverse etiologies or aggravating factors that may lead to a differential diagnosis with several potential therapeutic approaches conversely to what has been done for too many years. This well-researched book, with many international contributors, is currently the best available overall summary on bruxism for the dental practitioner and the most conservative answer for treatment of patients.
