Temporomandibular disorders and bruxism in children and adolescents

Research output: PhD ThesisPhD-Thesis – Research external, graduation internal


Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) and bruxism studies on young population are still facing several issues, such as potential geographic variations, differences in definition, diagnostic method, and age distribution. These factors prevent clinicians and researchers from drawing conclusions about their prevalence or associated factors. In order to obtain a deeper insight into the occurrence and risk indicators of TMDs and bruxism among the young population, we conducted several cross-sectional studies on children and adolescents living in Indonesia and in The Netherlands. Another study focused on the potential geographic variation of bruxism. To that end, questionnaires were distributed among young populations across three socio-culturally different countries: Indonesia, The Netherlands, and Armenia.
