A disorder characterized by grinding and clenching of the teeth.
A sleep disorder characterized by grinding and clenching of the teeth and forceful lateral or protrusive jaw movements. Sleep bruxism may be associated with TOOTH INJURIES; TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT DISORDERS; sleep disturbances; and other conditions.
Loss of the tooth substance by chemical or mechanical processes
An occlusion resulting in overstrain and injury to teeth, periodontal tissue, or other oral structures.
The wearing away of a tooth as a result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It is chiefly associated with aging. It is differentiated from TOOTH ABRASION (the pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by friction, as brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes) and from TOOTH EROSION (the loss of substance caused by chemical action without bacterial action). (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p86)
A symptom complex consisting of pain, muscle tenderness, clicking in the joint, and limitation or alteration of mandibular movement. The symptoms are subjective and manifested primarily in the masticatory muscles rather than the temporomandibular joint itself. Etiologic factors are uncertain but include occlusal dysharmony and psychophysiologic factors.
A masticatory muscle whose action is closing the jaws.
Acquired or learned responses which are regularly manifested.
Muscles arising in the zygomatic arch that close the jaw. Their nerve supply is masseteric from the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
The mouth, teeth, jaws, pharynx, and related structures as they relate to mastication, deglutition, and speech.
The relationship of all the components of the masticatory system in normal function. It has special reference to the position and contact of the maxillary and mandibular teeth for the highest efficiency during the excursive movements of the jaw that are essential for mastication. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p556, p472)
An artificial replacement for one or more natural teeth or part of a tooth, or associated structures, ranging from a portion of a tooth to a complete denture. The dental prosthesis is used for cosmetic or functional reasons, or both. DENTURES and specific types of dentures are also available. (From Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p244 & Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p643)
Common form of habitual body manipulation which is an expression of tension.
Rigid or flexible appliances that overlay the occlusal surfaces of the teeth. They are used to treat clenching and bruxism and their sequelae, and to provide temporary relief from muscle or temporomandibular joint pain.
A variety of conditions affecting the anatomic and functional characteristics of the temporomandibular joint. Factors contributing to the complexity of temporomandibular diseases are its relation to dentition and mastication and the symptomatic effects in other areas which account for referred pain to the joint and the difficulties in applying traditional diagnostic procedures to temporomandibular joint pathology where tissue is rarely obtained and x-rays are often inadequate or nonspecific. Common diseases are developmental abnormalities, trauma, subluxation, luxation, arthritis, and neoplasia. (From Thoma's Oral Pathology, 6th ed, pp577-600)
A histamine H1 receptor antagonist that is effective in the treatment of chronic urticaria, dermatitis, and histamine-mediated pruritus. Unlike its major metabolite CETIRIZINE, it does cause drowsiness. It is also effective as an antiemetic, for relief of anxiety and tension, and as a sedative.
The pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes. It is differentiated from TOOTH ATTRITION in that this type of wearing away is the result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It differs also from TOOTH EROSION, the progressive loss of the hard substance of a tooth by chemical processes not involving bacterial action. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p2)
Perception of shape and form of objects by TOUCH, via tactile stimuli.
Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.
Abnormal breathing through the mouth, usually associated with obstructive disorders of the nasal passages.
The act and process of chewing and grinding food in the mouth.
The teeth of the first dentition, which are shed and replaced by the permanent teeth.
An articulation between the condyle of the mandible and the articular tubercle of the temporal bone.
Pain in the ear.
Muscles of facial expression or mimetic muscles that include the numerous muscles supplied by the facial nerve that are attached to and move the skin of the face. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
One of a set of bone-like structures in the mouth used for biting and chewing.
The failure to retain teeth as a result of disease or injury.
The use of a device composed of thermoluminescent material for measuring exposure to IONIZING RADIATION. The thermoluminescent material emits light when heated. The amount of light emitted is proportional to the amount of ionizing radiation to which the material has been exposed.
Supplies used in building.
Works containing information articles on subjects in every field of knowledge, usually arranged in alphabetical order, or a similar work limited to a special field or subject. (From The ALA Glossary of Library and Information Science, 1983)
Conditions characterized by disturbances of usual sleep patterns or behaviors. Sleep disorders may be divided into three major categories: DYSSOMNIAS (i.e. disorders characterized by insomnia or hypersomnia), PARASOMNIAS (abnormal sleep behaviors), and sleep disorders secondary to medical or psychiatric disorders. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
A readily reversible suspension of sensorimotor interaction with the environment, usually associated with recumbency and immobility.
An inherited neurological developmental disorder that is associated with X-LINKED INHERITANCE and may be lethal in utero to hemizygous males. The affected female is normal until the age of 6-25 months when progressive loss of voluntary control of hand movements and communication skills; ATAXIA; SEIZURES; autistic behavior; intermittent HYPERVENTILATION; and HYPERAMMONEMIA appear.

Temporomandibular disorders and the need for stomatognathic treatment in orthodontically treated and untreated girls. (1/55)

The aim of this investigation was to study symptoms of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and headaches longitudinally in girls with Class II malocclusions receiving orthodontic treatment in comparison with subjects with untreated Class II malocclusions and girls with normal occlusion, and to evaluate the need and demand for stomatognathic treatment. The frequency and location of subjective symptoms of TMD and headaches were registered by means of an interview and a questionnaire in three groups of age-matched adolescent girls. Sixty-five Class II subjects received orthodontic fixed straight-wire appliance treatment (Orthodontic group), 58 with Class I malocclusion were orthodontically untreated (Class II group) and 60 had a normal occlusion (Normal group). Individual fluctuations of reported symptoms of TMD were found in all three groups over the 2-year period of the study. Subjects with untreated Class II malocclusions rated their overall symptoms of TMD as more severe than the Orthodontic and the Normal groups. In the Orthodontic group, the prevalence of symptoms of TMD decreased over the 2 years. The overall prevalence of symptoms of TMD was, however, lower in the Normal group than in the other two groups. The need for stomatognathic treatment in the whole sample was estimated to be 13 per cent, while the actual demand was 3 per cent. The large fluctuation of symptoms of TMD over time leads us to suggest a conservative treatment approach when stomatognathic treatment in children and adolescents is considered. The results show that orthodontic treatment did not increase the risk of TMD.  (+info)

Temporomandibular dysfunction in patients treated with orthodontics in combination with orthognathic surgery. (2/55)

Fifty-two patients with malocclusions underwent orthodontic treatment in combination with orthognathic surgery involving a Le Fort I and/or sagittal split osteotomy. Approximately 5 years after surgery, the patients were examined for signs and symptoms of temporomandibular disorders (TMD). The frequencies were found to be low in comparison with epidemiological studies in this field. The aesthetic outcome and chewing ability were improved in most patients (about 80 per cent). Some of the patients had reported recurrent and daily headaches before treatment. At examination, only two patients had reported having a headache once or twice a week, while all the others suffered from headaches less often or had no headache at all. Eighty-three per cent of the patients reported that they would be prepared to undergo the orthodontic/surgical treatment again with their present knowledge of the procedure. This study shows that orthodontic/surgical treatment of malocclusions not only has a beneficial effect on the aesthetic appearance and chewing ability, but also results in an improvement in signs and symptoms of TMD, including headaches.  (+info)

A case of anterior open bite developing during adolescence. (3/55)

Imaging studies have reported on the relationship between temporomandibular joint (TMJ) degeneration and facial deformity. These studies have suggested that mandibular growth is affected by TMJ degeneration, resulting in altered skeletal structure as mandibular retrusion. However, there are very few longitudinal case reports on TMJ osteoarthrosis (OA). Progressive open bite occurred in an adolescent patient with TMJ OA. Cephalometric analysis showed a downward and backward rotated mandible, and a labial inclination of the upper incisor. Magnetic resonance imaging showed internal derangement without reduction and erosion in the right and the left condyles. Although the cause of open bite is unclear in this case, tongue thrusting, and internal derangements in the temporomandibular joint were suspected as causes of the open bite.  (+info)

Variability in sleep bruxism activity over time. (4/55)

Sleep bruxism (SB) is an oral activity associated with jaw movements and tooth grinding. Sleep bruxism is believed to be highly variable over time, with subjects showing no activity on some nights and intense activity on others. Assessment of SB variability in individual patients is necessary for clinical trials designed to estimate the efficacy of SB management strategies. The present study analysed SB night-to-night variability over time in nine moderate to severe SB patients. Excluding the first night for habituation, a total of 37 nights were analysed, with a range of 2-8 nights per subject. The interval between the first and the last recording was between 2 months and 7.5 years. The outcomes were the number of SB episodes per hour, number of SB bursts per hour and number of SB episodes with grinding noise. The within subject variability of the three SB oromotor outcomes was evaluated using standard deviation (SD) and coefficient of variation. To verify the diagnosis of subjects over time, the values of the oromotor outcomes were compared with a standard research diagnostic cut-off: (1) Number of SB episodes per hour >4, (2) Number of SB bursts per hour >25, (3) Number of SB episodes with noise per night >1 (Lavigne et al. 1996). The mean coefficient of variation for the nine subjects was 25.3% for SB episodes per hour, 30.4% for SB bursts per hour and 53.5% for episodes with noise. Linear regression showed that the number of SB episodes per hour of stages 1 and 2 explains a large proportion of the variability. The SB diagnosis remained constant over time for every subject: 35 nights over 37 respected criteria 1 and 2, while grinding was present every night. These results indicate that while the SB diagnostic remains relatively constant over time in moderate to severe sleep bruxers, individual variability could be important in some SB patients.  (+info)

Emotional stress and brux-like activity of the masseter muscle in rats. (5/55)

The aim of this study was to further clarify the relationship between emotional stress and bruxism. In experiment 1, 60 male 9-week-old Wistar rats were divided into four groups: the emotionally stressed (ES), the emotionally non-stressed (NS), the electrically foot-shocked (FSd), and the non-foot-shocked (NSd). ES rats were confined in a communication box for one hour a day to observe the emotional responses of neighbouring FSd rats. On days 0, 1, 4, 8, and 12, the electromyographic activity of the ES and NS rats' left masseter muscles was recorded for one hour, three hours after confinement in the communication box. Brux-like activity appeared in the masseter muscle of the ES group on days 1, 4, 8, and 12, but not in the NS group. In experiment 2, 36 male Wistar rats, 9 weeks old, were divided into three groups: emotionally stressed rats treated with an anti-anxiety drug (DES), emotionally stressed rats treated with saline as a vehicle (VES), and 24 FSd rats. Stress and EMG procedures were the same as those in experiment 1. Brux-like episodes decreased in DES rats from day 1 and significant differences were found on days 4 (P < 0.01), 8 (P < 0.05), and 12 (P < 0.05), when compared with the VES group. These findings suggest that emotional stress induces brux-like activity in the masseter muscle of rats, which was reduced with anti-anxiety drugs.  (+info)

The cracked tooth syndrome. (6/55)

The purpose of this article is to review the clinical features, diagnosis and management of the cracked tooth syndrome (CTS). The condition refers to an incomplete fracture of a vital posterior tooth that occasionally extends into the pulp. A lack of awareness of the condition coupled with its varied clinical features can make diagnosis of CTS difficult. Common symptoms include an uncomfortable sensation or pain from a tooth that occurs while chewing hard foods and which ceases when the pressure is withdrawn. The patient is often unable to identify the offending tooth or quadrant involved, and may report a history of numerous dental procedures with unsatisfactory results. Successful diagnosis and management requires an awareness of the existence of CTS and the appropriate diagnostic tests. Management options depend on the nature of the symptoms and extent of the lesion. These options include routine monitoring, occlusal adjustments, placement of a cast restoration and endodontic treatment. A decision flowchart indicating the treatment options available to the dental practitioner is presented.  (+info)

Oral habits of temporomandibular disorder patients with malocclusion. (7/55)

The purpose of this study was to clarify the relationship between oral habits and symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder in patients who had sought orthodontic treatment by analyzing their present and past history. The subjects were 57 female patients (average age: 23 years and 6 months old) who had visited the "Temporomandibular Disorder Section" in our orthodontic department. Their chief complaints were the symptom of TMJ and the abnormalities of occlusion such as maxillary protrusion, open bite, crowding, mandibular protrusion, cross bite, deep bite, edge-to-edge bite, and spacing. Their present conditions and past histories were examined and evaluated. The most typical primary symptom was joint sound (23 patients, 40.0%). The second was joint sound and pain (15 patients, 26.3%). Of the symptoms present at the time of examination, the most prevalent were joint sound and pain (20 patients, 35.1%). The 48 patients (82.8%) had significant oral habits. Unilateral chewing was seen in 35 patients (72.9%), bruxism in 27 (56.3%), abnormality of posture in 14 (29.2%), habitual crunching in 10 (20.8%) and resting the check on the hand in 4 (8.3%), respectively. When comparing the primary symptoms to those at the time of examination, the patients with unilateral chewing and bruxism tended to have more complicated symptoms. In conclusion, the TMD symptoms of the patients with notable oral habits did not change or become worse during a period of about 5 years.  (+info)

Signs and symptoms of temporomandibular disorders in adolescents. (8/55)

The aim of this study was to verify the prevalence of signs and symptoms of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) in adolescents and its relationship to gender. The sample comprised 217 subjects, aged 12 to 18. The subjective symptoms and clinical signs of TMD were evaluated, using, respectively, a self-report questionnaire and the Craniomandibular Index, which has 2 subscales; the Dysfunction Index and the Palpation Index. The results of muscle tenderness showed great variability (0.9-32.25%). In relation to the temporomandibular joint, tenderness of the superior, dorsal and lateral condyle regions occurred in 10.6%, 10.6% and 7.83%, respectively, of the sample. Joint sound during opening was present in 19.8% of the sample and during closing in 14.7%. The most prevalent symptoms were joint sounds (26.72%) and headache (21.65%). There was no statistical difference between genders (p > 0.05), except for the tenderness of the lateral pterygoid muscles, which presented more prevalence in girls. In conclusion, clinical signs and symptoms of TMD can occur in adolescents; however, gender influence was not perceived.  (+info)

Many people suffer from seemingly random facial pain and chronic headaches; these issues go untreated, because sufferers do not realize that there are treatment options available. In many cases, the root cause of these type of discomfort is actually bruxism. Bruxism refers to chronic dental grinding and clenching; this may occur during the day or at night while the patient is sleeping. Our Elmhurst dentists are here to answer your questions about bruxism-lets get started!. Q: Why am I suffering from bruxism? A: Bruxism may occur for a variety of reasons. You may have suffered an injury to your jaw at some point-this can cause your temporomandibular joint to become damaged and thus lead to bruxism. Another possibility is that your bite surfaces are poorly aligned, so your top and bottom teeth do not fit together comfortably. Additionally, sometimes bruxism pops up due to stress. Q: What are the risks associated with bruxism ...
Bruxism is the habit of clenching and grinding the teeth. It usually occurs at night during sleep, but it may also occur during the day. Approximately onein four adults experiences it, but because it is an unconscious habit, mostpeople are not aware of it until their teeth have been damaged.. While bruxism is typically associated with stress, anger, or anxiety, it mayalso be caused by abnormal occlusion (the way the upper and lower teeth fit together), or crooked or missing teeth.. Symptoms of bruxism include: dull headaches; sore and tired facial muscles; earaches; sensitive teeth; and locking, popping, and clicking of the jaw.. During a dental examination, a dentist may recognize damage resulting from bruxism, including: enamel loss from the chewing surfaces of teeth; flattened tooth surfaces; loosened teeth; and fractured teeth and fillings. Left untreated, bruxism may lead to tooth loss and jaw dysfunction.. Medical and dental histories and examinations are necessary to differentiatebruxism ...
If your child grinds his or her teeth, dont be too concerned. Bruxism is not necessarily a sign of stress in your child. Pediatric dentists have various theories about what causes bruxism, ranging from some irritating feature in the mouth, such as misaligned teeth, to allergies, to stress. Because a childs teeth and jaw grow and change so quickly, bruxism is common and is not usually a damaging habit in need of treatment.. If bruxism or teeth clenching (which is what you are most likely to observe) is causing you trouble, consider seeking treatment, reducing stress, or at least developing new ways of coping with stress. Exercise is an excellent way for your body to process stress. Relaxation skills and activities can also make a big difference in how stress affects your body and mind. Bruxism related to sleep disorders can be treated with a low dose of antidepressant. Hypnosis, which addresses subconscious behaviour, may also be helpful. See the topic Stress Management. Also see the topic ...
Bruxism, also known as grinding of the teeth, is more common than you think: Studies show that around 1 in 3 people suffers from teeth grinding at some point in their life. Bruxism can cause quite a number of oral health problems if not treated. If you believe you are suffering from bruxism, the cosmetic and restorative dentistry of Buhite & Buhite, DDS in Rochester can offer advice and help treat the problem.. The side effects of teeth grinding can range from minor annoyances to serious problems for long time sufferers. Loose teeth, the wearing away of enamel, receding gums, jaw aches, recurring headaches, intense tooth pain, and various jaw disorders are all complications that can arise from bruxism. How can you manage these effects?. More often than not, stress plays the biggest factor on the severity of your teeth grinding. In order to treat the symptoms of bruxism or even get rid of it completely, there are a few tricks you can use. The most obvious way to treat the condition is to simply ...
TREATMENT OF SLEEP-RELATED BRUXISM ( SRB). The treatment of SRB in the earliest stages of the disease is critical. This can minimize the effects and prevent permanent damage to dental structures as well as other effects. The Luco Hybrid device May only be used on adults 18 and older. This means that treatment should be considered from that age forward.. Mild to moderate SRB (,15 bruxism episodes per hour) responds usually within 2-3 weeks. Severe SRB (greater than 25 events per hour) often involve the neck and shoulder muscles, as theses are active with chewing. There is usually a long standing history for this condition and quite often, a history of a head or neck injury. Severe cases can take 6-8 weeks to respond or longer.. For chronic long standing sleep-related bruxism, a single arch appliance will actually worsen the condition and should be avoided. Both upper and lower bruxism appliances increase the number of SRB events per hour and upper bruxism appliances may even reduce the airway ...
Bruxism refers to grind or gnash the opposing rows of upper and lower molar teeth. It is important to treat bruxism as a factor that can influence sleep quality, quality of life, and mental status in patients with malignancy. A 41-year-old male developed bruxism secondary to cerebral glioblastoma. l-dopa, gabapentin, clonazepam, clonidine, baclofen, buspirone, or propranolol were not effective. Mirtazapine, prescribed for side effects of chemotherapy, was effective for bruxism, which was disappeared within 3 weeks. Mirtazapine was effective for treating bruxism as well as chemotherapy complications.
Bruxism refers to an oral parafunctional activity that occurs in most humans at some point in their lives. Grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw are the two main characteristics of this condition, which can occur during the day or at night. Bruxism is one of the most common known sleep disorders and causes most of its damage during sleeping hours. The clenching and grinding which accompanies bruxism is symptomatic of a malfunctioning chewing reflex, which is turned off in non-sufferers when sleeping. For sufferers, deep sleep or even naps cause the reflex nerve control center in the brain to turn off and the reflex pathways to become active.. Typically, the incisors and canines (front 6 upper and lower teeth) of opposing arches grind against each other laterally. This side to side action puts undue strain on the medial pterygoid muscles and the temporomandibular joints. Earache, depression, headaches, eating disorders, and anxiety are among the most common symptoms of bruxism; these ...

TMJ pain is caused by Bruxism which is characterised by the grinding of the teeth and is typically accompanied by the clenching of the jaw leading to morning migraines, headaches, no exact figures on the frequency of bruxism are available as over 80% of all bruxers may be unaware of the habit and the diagnosis is usually made when the teeth are examined by a dental surgeon. For these reasons, estimates of the prevalence of bruxism range from 5% to 20%. Bruxism gnashing of teeth is characterised by the grinding of the teeth and is typically accompanied by the clenching of the jaw. It is an oral habit that occurs in most humans at some time in their lives. In most people, bruxism is mild enough not to be a health problem. While bruxism may occur during the day or night activity, it is bruxism during sleep that causes the majority of health issues and can even occur during short naps. Bruxism is one of the most common sleep disorders. Some bruxism activity is rhythmic (like chewing), and some is ...
Objective: To assess the prevalence of 3 troublesome temporomandibular disorder (TMD) symptoms and awareness of bruxism in 2 cohorts of subjects aged 65 and 75 years. Background: Epidemiological studies have demonstrated a high, though varying, prevalence of TMD symptoms. The results concerning elderly people are inconclusive. Material and methods: Identical questionnaires were in 2007 sent to all subjects born in 1942 and 1932 living in two Swedish counties. The response rate was 73.1% for the 65- and 71.9 % for the 75-year-old subjects, totally 9093 subjects. This study focused on 3 questions on the severity of TMD symptoms and 1 question on awareness of bruxism. Results: The great majority reported no or only few TMD problems. Less than 3 % (måste kontrolleras!) considered their TMD symptoms to be rather great or severe. The mean prevalence of TMD-related symptoms and bruxism was greater in women than in men in both age groups. The 75-year-old women reported a marked lower prevalence of TMD ...

Whether the cause is physical or psychological, kids might be able to control bruxism by relaxing before bedtime - for example, by taking a warm bath or shower, listening to a few minutes of soothing music, or reading a book.. For bruxism thats caused by stress, ask about whats upsetting your child and find a way to help. For example, a kid who is worried about being away from home for a first camping trip might need reassurance that mom or dad will be nearby if needed.. If the issue is more complicated, such as moving to a new town, discuss your childs concerns and try to ease any fears. If youre concerned, talk to your doctor.. In rare cases, basic stress relievers arent enough to stop bruxism. If your child has trouble sleeping or is acting differently than usual, your dentist or doctor may suggest further evaluation. This can help find the cause of the stress and a proper course of treatment.. ...

The use of Botox to treat bruxism can be treated as an adjunct to the use of rail while relaxing (transparent overlay) assumed the teeth or as a method of self- acceptance in the absence of rails relaxing by the patient. Botox is administered to patients particularly hard teeth grinding in order to reduce the strength of the muscles of cheek.. Caused by the disease permanently tense muscles (masseter, occiput and neck) triggers tension headaches. It felt such pain behind the eye, often causes tearing, and intensity of symptoms of a migraine -like. Botulinum toxin reduces the long-term masseter muscle tension, which is the source of pain. If left untreated, bruxism causes severe pain in the head and face, back problems and even hearing and eyesight.. ...

Although there have been lot of studies on bruxism forces and bruxism activities, no real medical device has been developed to measure the forces that arise due to bruxism activities. In this thesis, different type of sensors were investigated to develop a suitable bruxism force detector. This sensor was also interfaced to a wireless transceiver to form a wireless force sensor. The sensors that were investigated included piezoelectric sensors, piezoresistive sensors (Honeywell FSL05N2C), Thin Film Flexi-force Sensor, constantan strain gage sensor and piezoresistive strain gage sensor. The sensors were subjected to different load cycle patterns at different rates to a maximum force of up to 200 N. The sensors were tested for their repeatability, linearity, hysteresis and drift. Experimental results show that piezoresistive strain gage sensors are best suited sensors for bruxism force detection. These types of sensors are small in size; they do give consistent results and have high voltage output ...

OBJECTIVES: The aim was to investigate associations between factors and the incidence of erosive wear in lower first molars and upper incisors, and to investigate whether these associations differ between these locations. METHODS: The study sample of this 3-year longitudinal study consisted of 572 children (mean age 11.9 years, SD=0.9). The permanent dentition was examined for erosive wear according to a modified Lussi-index (1996). Information on biological and behavioural factors was gathered by clinical examinations (at baseline, after 1.5 and 3 years) and by questionnaires (every six months). RESULTS: The incidence of erosive wear in upper incisors over 3 years was 22.2%, for lower first molars the incidence was 14.8%. Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that carbonated soft drink (OR=1.04) and tooth grinding (OR=2.93) were positively associated with the incidence of erosive wear in upper incisors and milk (OR=0.95) and yoghurt products (OR=0.88) were negatively associated. The ...
How can bruxism damage my childs teeth?. Bruxism is characterized by the grinding of the upper jaw against the lower jaw. Especially in cases where there is vigorous grinding, the child may experience moderate to severe jaw discomfort, headaches, and ear pain. Even if the child is completely unaware of nighttime bruxing (and parents are unable to hear it), the condition of the teeth provides your pediatric dentist with important clues.. First, chronic grinders usually show an excessive wear pattern on the teeth. If jaw misalignment is the cause, tooth enamel may be worn down in specific areas. In addition, children who brux are more susceptible to chipped teeth, facial pain, gum injury, and temperature sensitivity. In extreme cases, frequent, harsh grinding can lead to the early onset of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).. What causes bruxism?. Bruxism can be caused by several different factors. Most commonly, bad bite or jaw misalignment promotes grinding. Pediatric dentists also notice ...

Teeth grinding in sleeping is also known as bruxism and happens when children clench their upper and lower teeth, rubbing them together, mostly during sleeping
For years we have searched for answers regarding why some of our patients clench and/or grind their teeth. We have blamed this so called parafunctional activity on everything from premature occlusal contacts, dysfunctional mandibular position (too far forward, too far backward, too much vertical, too little vertical, in CR, not in CR,) and of course, emotional and psychological stress. We often see the results of bruxism in children and hear from the parents of the violent and loud nature of the grinding. We have provided every type of plastic to place between the teeth of patients to control their parafunctional behavior, or at least to try to protect their teeth and periodontium from damage. But often our attempts to control the behavior seem futile, and the patient continues to fight whatever piece of plastic we place in their mouth, or worse yet, destroy their teeth and restorations.. Speaking of restorations, have you noticed that patients with significant anterior wear tend to ...
