This evidence-based comprehensive volume on bruxism provides answers to many questions arising in everyday dental practice. Researchers, students and specialists will benefit from the in-depth analysis of the subject and the extensive, up-to-date bibliographies.

The book is divided into three sections: the first deals with bruxism knowledge and guidelines for diagnosis, sleep physiology, the main etiological theories, the influence of peripheral and emotional factors, and movement disorders and bruxism in children; the central section is devoted to the effects of bruxism on the different masticatory system components, including the noxious action of bruxism on dental pulp, periodontal ligament, TMJ, muscles, and its relationship with pain; and the final section encompasses different aspects related to the treatment of bruxism, including the pharmacological effects of certain central-action drugs and some peripheral-action drugs, such as the botulinum toxin, the treatment of bruxism through dental implants and the recommended dental materials.

Bruxism: Theory and Practice is devoted exclusively to bruxism and its treatment, an eagerly anticipated compilation that will interest general practitioners and specialists alike.

Daniel Angel Paesani is Professor of Masticatory System Physiology in the School of Odontology, Universidad del Salvador/AOA, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
