, awake bruxism and sleep quality among Brazilian dental students: a cross-sectional study.
In particular, we recorded the dental enamel wear defects caused by attrition because they may be the consequence of parafunctional activity like sleep bruxism
. Enamel hypoplasia was defined by a reduced deposition of the enamel matrix by the ameloblasts.
As a result, it was not surprising that the final regression model included sleep bruxism
and the adverse oral habit "biting on lips and/or cheeks."
Assessment of the quality of life of individuals related to oral health has been studied (17-21), but there is little in the literature about the association between quality of life and sleep bruxism
in schoolchildren aged 11-14.
The nondifferentiation of sleep bruxism
from awake bruxism is another limitation.
Relationship Between the Frequency of Sleep Bruxism
and the Prevalence of Signs and Symptoms of TMD.
Likewise, this study found that the frequency of signs and symptoms of TMD and the presence of sleep bruxism
were not different between the control and CMT2 groups.
The disorder has been identified as daytime or/and sleep bruxism
and once the disorder is known, often can be modified.
Boffins writing in BioMed Central's open access journal Head and Face Medicine studied the causes of 'sleep bruxism
', gnashing teeth during the night, finding that it was especially common in those who try to cope with stress by escaping from difficult situations.
