The features of bruxism/parafunctional habit are clenching and/or grinding of teeth, capable of cause damage to the integrity of the stomatognathic system structures.2 The other features of bruxism are extreme sliding movements in the temporomandibular joint, gross attrition on the incisal
edges of the anterior and the cusps of the posterior teeth, pterygoid muscles involuntary contraction accompanied by obnoxious night-time grinding sounds.3, 4
The initial displacement was the largest in the incisal
edge of lateral incisors compared with the canine central incisors.

, espacamento no segmento incisal
, diastema incisal
, desalinhamento no maxilar e mandibular anterior; e (3) a dimensao da oclusao com os componentes overjet maxilar anterior e mandibular anterior, mordida aberta anterior e relacao molar antero--posterior (15,17).
Therefore, the treatment plan involved correcting the incisal
relationships, reducing anterior proclination, and improving the lip protrusion by distalization with skeletal anchorage.
An occlusal splint is a removable device usually made of hard acrylic that fits over the occlusal and incisal
