Abstract

The relationship between Child Bruxism and anxiety associated with the use of technological devices was verified through a clinical study based on an integrative review. The revision scope was carried out in the bibliographic bases VHL, MEDLINE, BBO and LILACS, the keywords "bruxism", "children", "anxiety" and "alpha-amylases" were used, eligibility criteria were established and followed for the selection of articles. In the clinical stage, the participants were entertained with a digital game, a sample of saliva was collected, before and after using the device. Subsequently, intraoral examination, measurement of salivary alpha-amylase (AAS) and questionnaires were performed. The average age of the participants was 8.4 years (n = 10). Among the patients with bruxism, it was observed that (57.2%) they wake up at night, talk (60%), snore (80%), report nightmares (80%) and dental clenching (75%). The most used device was a cell phone / tablet (90%), with an average weekly time of (27h) (SD ± 6.05), there was no statistically significant difference between the mean AAS levels before and after exposure to the digital game (T-Student test, p-value 0.653). It was concluded that anxiety is a factor that may be related to the involvement of Childhood Bruxism. Most witches users of technological devices had a habit of grinding their teeth and poor sleep quality than those who did not have bruxism. AAS levels are high before and after exposure to digital gaming.
