      SEVERE DENTAL WEAR CAUSED BY ASSOCIATION BETWEEN NOCTURNAL BRUXISM AND GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX: OVERVIEW ON THE CLINICAL AND SCIENTIFIC ASPECTS (Abstract): Dentists are often the first health professionals to diagnose systemic illnesses by observing their oral manifestations. Nocturnal bruxism may be secondary to gastro-esophageal nocturnal reflux, and patients with reflux often have excessive tooth wear, which is also a feature of nocturnal bruxism. The purpose of this article is to focus on the detrimental effects on teeth caused by the association between gastro-oesophageal reflux and night bruxism, recommending dentists to identify manifestations of systemic affections in the oral cavity through their distinctive features. Early diagnosis can improve the physical well-being of patients and may reduce teeth wear. The dental complications found in these patients present a number of clinical challenges to restore the functional and aesthetic disorders of these patients.
Key words: SEVERE DENTAL WEAR, NOCTURNAL BRUXISM, GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX
