Towards a standardized tool for the assessment of bruxism (STAB) - overview and general remarks of a multidimensional bruxism evalution system


Manfredini, Daniele; Ahlberg, Jari; Aarab, Ghizlane; Bracci, Alessandro; Durham, Justin; Ettlin, Dominik; Gallo, Luigi M; Koutris, Michail; Wetselaar, Peter; Svensson, Peter; Lobbezoo, Frank (2020). Towards a standardized tool for the assessment of bruxism (STAB) - overview and general remarks of a multidimensional bruxism evalution system. Journal of Oral Rehabilitation, 47(5):549-556.

Abstract

The aim of the present paper was to give an overview of the general project and to present the macrostructure of a comprehensive multidimensional toolkit for the assessment of bruxism, viz. a bruxism evaluation system. This is a necessary intermediate step that will be detailed in a successive extended publication and will ultimately lead to the definition of a Standardized Tool for the Assessment of Bruxism (STAB) as the final product. Two invitation-only workshops were held during the 2018 and 2019 General Session & Exhibition of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) meetings. Participants of the IADR closed meetings were split into two groups, to put the basis for a multidimensional evaluation system composed of two main axes: an evaluation Axis A with three assessment domains (ie subject-based, clinically based and instrumentally based assessment) and an aetiological/risk factors Axis B assessing different groups of factors and conditions (ie psychosocial assessment; concurrent sleep and non-sleep conditions; drug and substance use or abuse; and additional factors). The work of the two groups that led to the identification of different domains for assessment is summarised in this manuscript, along with a road map for future researches. Such an approach will allow clinicians and researchers to modulate evaluation of bruxism patients with a comprehensive look at the clinical impact of the different bruxism activities and aetiologies. The ultimate goal of this multidimensional system is to facilitate the refinement of decision-making algorithms in the clinical setting.
