Background: Lack of sleep generates many disorders and bruxism is one of them. It has
affected almost 31% of the world population.
Aim: The purpose of this paper is to determine the volume of the research conducted on bruxism
and to create a database. We aimed to highlight critical issues for further research commitments
and communications. This paper designs a comprehensive and very perception-based picture of
Methods: The research-based work uses three methods, including a systematic mapping process,
network visualization, and literature review. Softwares, such as VOSviewer, MATLAB, and MEGA-
X, have been utilized to analyze the work. We have researched deep insights of information to
retrieve the present understanding of bruxism disorder from dental to psychological concepts, from
engineering detection to clinical treatment, and from temporomandibular disorder to biological
Results: We found 10 keywords and 77 items of bruxism in PubMed, Scopus, Google Scholar, and
Web of Science databases based on previous publications. These keywords and items are helpful
for all types of researchers, which include engineering, science, and medical background personals.
11 genes and 75 research articles with approximately 115,077 subjects, for the analysis of detection,
treatment, child and adolescent bruxism, have been reviewed in the research work.
Conclusion: It has been found that bruxism altogether has sleep, neurological, dental, and genetic
disorder components and is a complex phenomenon. This study has also mentioned the future direction
and gap in research conducted so far on bruxism and has also tried to provide goals for the upcoming
research to be accomplished in a more significant and scientific manner.
