In 2016, The Luco Hybrid OSA Appliance became the first FDA cleared treatment of sleep-related bruxism and to aid in the treatment of associated tension/migraine headaches (in addition to sleep apnea and snoring). It is currently still the only FDA cleared treatment of sleep-related bruxism to date and the only OSA Appliance that is FDA cleared for the treatment of sleep apnea and sleep-related bruxism, or when they occur together (secondary sleep bruxism).
Sleep-related bruxism is an inherited painful sleep disorder affecting over 25 million adults in the US and is a primary cause of dental problems, headaches, TMJ problems, and disturbed sleep. It causes an increase in heart rate and blood pressure with each bruxism event. On this website, you will find very current information and videos on sleep-related bruxism, associated tension/migraine headaches, as well as information on how the Luco Hybrid OSA Appliance treats it. There are also links to research on sleep-related bruxism to explore throughout the website as well as a page of related research on sleep-related bruxism, papers by Dr. Luco, as well as many other respected researchers.
