Feature Article
Bruxism is a widespread dental parafunction. The loads exerted on teeth and dental implants in the course of jaw clenching and teeth grinding far exceed the forces that occur during mastication. As a result of these persistent intermittent loads, implant-supported dentures may experience biomechanical and/or biological failures, such as ceramic chipping or fractures.
