Le bruxisme secondaire chez l'enfant : mise au point

Abstract : Bruxism can be defined as a chronic motor manducatory activity, characterized primarily by clenching or grinding teeth, in most cases unconsciously. There are two types, awake bruxism and sleep bruxism, as well as two separate categories of bruxism, primary bruxism which has no identifiable medical causes and secondary bruxism which is associated with a neuropathic disorder or drugs. Very few studies in the scientific literature allow to clarify the physiopathology of secondary bruxism, let alone the care required despite it’s large prevalence in children. Therefore the objective of this work is to make a clarification about secondary bruxism in children. In the first section, a synthesis will be suggested in order to update and contextualize the knowledge on this subject. This will be followed by a systematic review of the scientific literature from 2009 to 2019 centered around the treatments of secondary bruxism in children. Finally, we will approach an example of available therapy, occlusal composite bonding, through the clinical case of a young patient affected by Rett Syndrome.
