Smart Mouth Guard Detects Teeth Grinding

The prototype they created does all of that and can send the information to a computer or smart phone via Bluetooth, where a dentist or orthodontist can retrieve it, make a diagnosis and suggest treatment.

The next iteration of this device could be aimed at athletes and other professionals. More information about this project is provided here.
