Dr Gordon J Christensen Suggests Testing for Sleep Bruxism

Sleep Scholar has been very interested in the link between OSA and (tooth grinding). The link in the literature is clear however the link between the literature and the practicing dentist has a long way to go. I recently purchased a DVD by Gordon Christensen DDS, MSD, PHD the chief clinician and educator behind Practical Clinical Courses. Dr Christensen demonstrates the use of the Nox T3 home sleep study by Carefusion, a home sleep testing device with the ability to measure cheek EMG. Cheek EMG is measured by placing an EMG lead on the masseter muscle and the zygomatic arch. ICD-2 defines sleep bruxism as “an oral parafunction characterized by grinding or clenching of the teeth during sleep that is associated with an excessive (intense) sleep arousal activity.”

“Dr. Gordon Christensen’s background and the proven reliability of his dentistry presentations have made him one of the most admired speakers in dentistry for several decades. He has helped initiate two new dental schools, delivered over 45,000 hours of continuing education, co-founded the most well-known private dental research institute in the world CLINICIANS REPORT (formerly Clinical Research Associates), produced hundreds of multimedia dental presentations, and has written hundreds of articles and several books.”

This is a preview of the video I purchased and I hope you take a look.



Is there a more frustrating situation than when you observe patients destroying their dentitions without any knowledge about the seriousness of the condition? This

DVD includes Gordon’s clinical observations, techniques, and experiences over several decades of preventing and treating bruxism and clenching.  Yes! It is possible to reduce or sometimes eliminate tooth destruction with proper techniques.
