Bruxism in childhood

Sleep bruxism is highly reported in pediatrics with a pick of prevalence up to 40 % during childhood and adolescence. The precise etiology of sleep bruxism remains unknown but it may involve genetic and psychosocial components. Clinicians should be aware that quite often sleep bruxism in children is associated with other sleep disorders, such as snoring, sleep-disordered breathing, sleep complaints, as well as behavioral problems. These comorbidities should be always investigated, since they may have severe and long-term health consequences in adolescents if they are not treated. As in adults, sleep bruxism in children may lead to morning jaw muscle soreness or pain, headache, masticatory muscle hypertrophy, temporomandibular disorders, and tooth wear. Especially in pediatrics, sleep bruxism is usually managed with conservative therapies, such as sleep hygiene, behavioral modifications, biofeedback, familial counseling and, only in cases of severe tooth wear or other painful sleep bruxism-related consequences, soft occlusal splints may be considered.
