Nature of Bruxism


Due to practical constraints on the study of the daily events of bruxism, the clinical trials were mainly focused on the nature of nightly bruxism. This mandibular parafunctional behavior that occurs during the sleeping hours consists in rhythmically often strong tooth friction or prolonged squeeze by muscle abbreviation.

The feature of the phenomenon is multi-layered. The proper knowledge and detection of the early symptoms are the keys for the treatment of bruxism.
