BruxApp - world’s first phone app for Bruxism
WHAT IS BRUXAPP?
BruxApp is the first globally available, research-based smartphone app dedicated to the study and management of Bruxism and its health consequences.
Designed by top international experts in a multi-center Bruxism research project and developed in 25 Research Centres across the world.
WHAT CAN IT DO?
Bruxapp is a simple tool used by dentists and patients for several purposes:
- To help the assessment of the presence/absence of bruxism-related activities (i.e., teeth clenching or grinding, jaw clenching) and potential consequences.
- For rating the severity of bruxism, if present.
- As a biofeedback-based management tool for bruxism.
- To increase patients’ awareness of bruxism activities so they can avoid or correct negative habits.
- To make patients aware of the possible clinical consequences of bruxism and try to prevent them.
- To promote cutting-edge knowledge about bruxism, based on the latest scientific research.
WHY is BruxApp needed?
Bruxism has been increasing in prevalence over recent years. It encompasses motor activities of the jaw muscles, such as jaw or teeth clenching, and teeth grinding, some of which may be associated with clinical signs and symptoms, like tooth wear, failed dental restorations, complications with implant-supported prosthesis, muscle fatigue and temporomandibular joint pain. A correct diagnosis is therefore fundamental to establishing early prevention and management regimens.
Studies with BruxApp have been supervised by experts, as part of an ongoing multicenter research project on bruxism epidemiology and management coordinated by Prof. Daniele Manfredini, University of Siena, Italy.
The app was developed by Goran Djukic, program analyst at the Institute of Clinical Physiology, National Council of Research, University of Pisa, Italy.
BruxApp is currently available in the following languages: English, Italian, , French, Portuguese, German, Spanish, Dutch, Finnish, Brazilian, Japanese, Hebrew, Chinese, Arabic, Greek, Polish, Lithuanian, Bosnian, Romanian, Turkish, Norwegian, and Croatian, with another 4 language versions soon to be released.
BruxApp is not a game or gadget. In order for BruxApp to work correctly and be effective, please dedicate 5 minutes of your time to READING the simple instructions CAREFULLY.
The full compatibility is guaranteed by iPhone 6 and higher ones and iOS 9.3 and higher ones.

Ratings and Reviews
Not clear it’s only for awake bruxism
Wish it was more clear it was for awake grinding. I have braces in right now and my daytime grinding is under control. Was looking for a nighttime aid and this isn’t it.
Confusing when it should be simple
I was so excited for this app, but day one and as my alerts come up I open the notifications yet there is no where to document how I’m feeling within the alert? I’ve looked everywhere, gone back thru the set up 3x now to make sure I’m not forgetting a step, and nothing. Imho opening the notification should take you to this place. Adding to my frustration is the fact that there is virtually no way to get app support and the boilerplate support page doesn’t address this at all
Works after the first day you download it
This app seems to do what the TMD Doctor suggested.
