Bruxism is a parafunctional habit characterized by grinding and/or clenching of the teeth. It may happen while awake or sleeping. In adults, the prevalence is 20 percent for the awake bruxism and 8 percent for the sleep bruxism. Peripheral, central and psychosocial factors influence the disorder, which may predispose to pain in the masticatory muscles and neck, headache, decreased pain thresholds in the masticatory and cervical muscles, limitation mandibular range of motion, sleep disorders, stress, anxiety, depression and overall impairment of oral health. The aim of this study is to compare two distinct physical therapy interventions with dental treatment in pain, mandibular range of motion, sleep quality, anxiety, stress, depression and oral health in individuals with bruxism. more
