In 2013, consensus was obtained on a definition of bruxism as repetitive masticatory muscle activity characterised by clenching or grinding of the teeth and/or by bracing or thrusting of the mandible and specified as either sleep bruxism or awake bruxism. In addition, a grading system was proposed to determine the likelihood that a certain assessment of bruxism actually yields a valid outcome. This study discusses the need for an updated consensus and has the following aims: (i) to further clarify the 2013 definition and to develop separate definitions for sleep and awake bruxism; (ii) to determine whether bruxism is a disorder rather than a behaviour that can be a risk factor for certain clinical conditions; (iii) to re-examine the 2013 grading system; and (iv) to develop a research agenda...

Background: One of the widespread problems of oral health is bruxism and is defined as a parafunctional habit with involuntary grinding and gnashing of the teeth occurring during sleep. However, bruxism is connected to anxiety and stress, but the published literature on bruxism among prison inmates is scanty. Objective: The objective of the study was to determine the prevalence of active sleep bruxism and its impact on oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) among inmates in Central Penal Institution, Mysore...

Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the possible factors associated to root resorption, common to daily clinical orthodontics, especially parafunctional habits. Methods: A retrospective study of 600 patients (308 females and 292 males) previously treated orthodontically was conducted. The sample was divided into two groups related to the degree of root resorption at the ending of treatment according to Malmgren. Group 1 comprised 507 patients with a mean initial age of 14...

Introduction: Bruxism is defined as a nonfunctional activity or a parafunctional habit characterized by the unconscious repetitive motion of clenching and/or grinding of the teeth. Soft occlusal splints have been considered as the first-line strategy for treating nocturnal bruxism. Cortisol is a major steroid hormone secreted by fascicular zone of the adrenal cortex, belonging to the glucocorticosteroidal group of hormones. Clinical studies have shown that when humans are placed under stress, the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical axis is activated, leading to an increase in cortical secretion...

Purpose: Oral health in cancer patients was known to influence the quality of life. However, the knowledge of possible factors associated with oral health in cancer patients is seriously lacking in Saudi Arabia. In this study, we aimed to determine the burden of adverse oral health in cancer patients and identify the associated factors for oral health problems. Materials and methods: A cross-sectional study design was used to recruit a total of 375 cancer patients who attended oncology outpatient clinics at King Abdulaziz Medical City - Riyadh (KAMC-R) by using a consecutive sampling technique...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to identify associations between definite sleep bruxism, as defined by the American academy of sleep medicine, and chronic stress and sleep quality. METHODS: Sleep bruxism was determined by use of questionnaires, assessment of clinical symptoms, and recording of electromyographic and electrocardiographic data (recorded by the Bruxoff® device). The study included 67 participants. Of these, 38 were identified as bruxers and 29 as non-bruxers...

Recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) is the most common inflammatory ulceration in the oral mucosa of otherwise healthy individuals and is often accompanied by severe pain. However, the etiology of RAS is not completely understood, and currently, no therapy can completely prevent RAS recurrence. In our clinical experience, we noticed that patients using a night guard, which is often used for bruxism treatment, did not develop RAS. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine whether mouthguard use can suppress RAS development...

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: An occlusal device is frequently recommended for patients with bruxism to protect implant-supported restorations and prevent marginal bone loss. Scientific evidence to support this treatment is lacking. PURPOSE: The purpose of this 3-dimensional (3D) finite element study was to evaluate the influence of an acrylic resin occlusal device, implant length, and insertion depth on stress distribution with functional and parafunctional loadings. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Computer-aided design software was used to construct 8 models...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effects of sleeping with or without a maxillary mucosa-supported complete denture (CD) in edentulous patients wearing a mandibular fixed implant-supported CD on sleep quality, sleep bruxism (SB) activity, and signs of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 18 female patients with maxillary mucosa-supported CDs opposing mandibular fixed implant-supported CDs were selected and tested for sleep quality, SB activity, and signs of OSAS during one night while wearing the maxillary CD and another night without wearing it, with a washout period of 7 days in between...

Background: Patients with inflammatory bowel diseases could experience mouth and teeth disorders and alterations in psychological mood. Vice versa, the psychological status may influence the presence of oral diseases. Aim: To evaluate in inflammatory bowel disease patients the prevalence of sleep bruxism and its correlation with the presence of oral diseases, quality of sleep, and psychological disturbances. Methods: Patients were consecutively recruited in our clinic and examined for temporomandibular disorders, dental enamel disorders, sleep bruxism, and recurrent aphthous stomatitis by two dentists...

The possible effects on sleep bruxism (SB) of clear aligners in orthodontics are unknown. This study was conducted to analyze the effects of clear aligners on SB. Sixty subjects needing orthodontic treatment and affected by SB (33 m, 27 f, 20±;5 years) were enrolled in the study and randomly assigned to one of the following three groups: 20 were given clear aligners (CAT) (12 m, 8 f, 19±5 years), 20 occlusal splint (MOS) (9 m, 11 f, 22±5 years) and 20 a placebo splint (PMS) (12 m, 8 f, 24±3 years). All groups were followed for 6 consecutive months and monitored for SB with a portable electromyographic-electrocardiographic (EMG-ECG) device (Bruxoff®, OT Bioelettronica, Torino, Italy)...

Purpose of review: Antidepressant-associated movement disorders are a well-described phenomenon. However, antidepressant-associated bruxism, jaw pain, or jaw spasm, while reported in dental literature, is less commonly recognized among neurologists. We summarize the clinical features and treatment of antidepressant-associated bruxism and associated jaw pain through a systematic review of case reports. Recent findings: Antidepressant-associated bruxism may occur in pediatric and adult patients, most commonly among female patients...
