Abstract

Teeth grinding is, due to its various impacts on the human body, a highly discussed issue in dentistry. It can damage the tooth structure or cause pain due to muscle tension. At the moment, there is neither a satisfactory diagnostic nor a comprehensive treatment option. This paper deals with the development of an app-controlled, small, portable sensor unit that can be used by patients to monitor their teeth grinding in everyday life. It also offers a treatment option due to an implemented biofeedback option. To achieve the most cost-effective device possible, only off-the-shelf electronics and no proprietary software were used. In initial tests, the measuring device showed high level of measurement accuracy when performing measurements without feedback at rest (f_score=-0.025...0).
