Activities of the masticatory system can be divided into functional, which includes chewing and speaking, as well as parafunctional, which includes clenching or grinding of the teeth. Sleep bruxism (SB) is the abnormal, nonfunctional contact of the teeth and if ignored leads to the breakdown of dentition and orofacial pain. Hence, early diagnosis and treatment are considered to be of utmost importance. SB has multifactorial causes that have to be identified and managed by various treatment modalities. As bruxism events bring about tooth and restoration damage, it is of major concern for the dentists.
