A Literature Review of Bruxism, Progressive Relaxation, Bensonian Relaxation, Autogenic Therapy, and EMG Feedback
MetadataShow full item record
Bruxism, the unnecessary grinding and gnashing of teeth, is a serious habit disorder with many uncomfortable oral symptoms in addition to an accompanying damaging effect to an otherwise healthy dental condition. The frequent occurrence of this habit disorder brought it to the attention of this writer's S.I.P. director Dr. Ronald R. Hutchinson. Under his supervision, the research and development of a clinic to aid individuals in the elimination of their bruxism habit is being accomplished. Clinic procedures involve the utilization of Progressive Relaxation in conjunction with EMG feedback. This project is chosen because such an endeavor, if it is successful, will result in the relieving of a common habit disorder. In short, it is the desire of this writer to work with people and not with laboratory animals.
