Bruxism may occur in association with other sleep disorders such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnea, with trismus, or with temporomandibular joint disorders. Clinical diagnosis is based on a history of tooth grinding during sleep confirmed by the patient's bed partner, or parents in the case of pediatric patients. Polysomnography is not required for diagnosis but should be performed when etiology is uncertain or when a comorbid sleep disorder, such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), is suspected.
Treatment involves repair of dental damage and prevention of damage with occlusal guards and splints.
