Welcome

Dentists are the first witnesses of the effects and the consequences of bruxisms.

In 2008, Bordeaux hosted a symposium organized by the CNO Aquitaine, gathering some of the world’s best specialists and dedicated to this issue, confirming its complex aspects.

During the last ten years, new datas have been published, allowing a better understanding of the various forms of sleep bruxism and awake bruxism.

Moreover, beyond dental wear, the spotlight was pointed on the link between bruxisms and related pathologies, and their serious consequences on our patients’ health. These pathologies include sleep disorders, obstructive sleep apnea syndromes, gastroesophageal reflux, etc.

It is time to take into account the current knowledge focussing on a diagnostic approach for a better care, keeping in mind that many points still remain unelucidated today.

This 35th CNO International meeting will be the opportunity to meet major lecturers, researchers and clinicians who have been regularly publishing new datas about this topic for a long time. They all enthusiastically accepted to take part in this scientific program, and we warmly thank them for coming.

The congress organizers decided to schedule spare time to talk with the lecturers, in order to allow interactive exchanges with the contributors. The aim is to provide the whole profession with helpful elements, dealing with all the bruxisms effects in their everyday work.

Hoping to be able to answer your questions, we invite you to Bordeaux next March 15th and 16th.
