ABSTRACT

Traumatizing forces may act on an individual tooth or on groups of teeth in premature contact relationship; they may occur in conjunction with parafunctions such as clenching and bruxism, or in conjunction with loss or migration of premolar and molar teeth with an accompanying, gradually developing spread of the anterior teeth of the maxilla etc. The local, regional and systemic effects of bruxism include tooth wear, excessive stress on periodontal ligaments and alveolar bone, temporomandibular joint effects and even effects on the nervous central system.
