The website was conceived by founder Gregory Steiger, a long-time bruxism patient who recognized the need for a comprehensive resource that could provide support, information and a sense of community for those dealing with this widespread, yet often misunderstood condition.

Bruxism is a common oral condition characterized by excessive teeth grinding or jaw clenching. It can lead to complications, such as tooth wear, jaw disorders, headaches and sleep disturbances. The exact cause of bruxism is not fully understood, but it is believed to be related to a combination of physical, psychological and genetic factors. Stress and anxiety are often associated with the condition. Despite its prevalence, many individuals lack the knowledge to manage bruxism effectively, let alone how to stop grinding their teeth, leading to unnecessary physical discomfort and emotional distress.

"Bruxism can be an isolating and challenging condition to live with," said Steiger. "Our mission is to create a safe and supportive environment where individuals can share their experiences, access up-to-date information and connect with others who understand their struggles."

Free assessment tools to help determine if you have bruxism, and to help people discover what they may have in common with others including their symptoms, conditions, lifestyle and bruxism treatments offers a wide range of resources, including blog posts, clinical trials, case studies and professional resources. The site also features a forum where individuals can share their experiences and insights, fostering community and mutual support.


In addition to the wealth of information and resources available, the site offers unique services, such as reviews and summaries of past clinical trials and case studies related to bruxism and bruxism treatments. These reviews and summaries are written by individuals and are also being experimented with AI technology, making the information more accessible and engaging for the community.

The website also features Brux Quiz, a short questionnaire designed to help users assess their bruxism symptoms, understand their condition better and start getting results.


"Bruxism Support Network is more than just a website; it's a community," added Steiger. "We're here to support each other, share our stories and work together toward a future free from bruxism."
