Determinants of probable sleep bruxism in a pediatric mixed dentition population: a multivariate analysis of mouth vs. nasal breathing, tongue mobility, and tonsil size
- Pediatric sleep bruxism was associated with impaired nasal breathing, restricted tongue mobility, and tonsil hypertrophy.
- Restricted tongue mobility was found to be an independent risk factor for bruxism in children.
- Tonsil hypertrophy, restricted tongue mobility, and nasal obstruction may have synergic effects on pediatric bruxism.
Discussion of: Adenoid hypertrophy; Narrow high arch palate; Pediatric obstructive sleep apnea; Rapid palatal expansion; Sleep disordered breathing; Tonsillar hypertrophy.
