For this reason 182 children with mixed dentition and 212 children with permanent dentition were included in this study. Occlusal conditions were examined clinically and bruxism was assessed by using interview and questionnaires. Z Test was used to compare the results. It was found that in both dentitions some occlusal factors related with bruxism (overjet > 6 mm, overbite > 5 mm, negative overjet, openbite in permanent dentition; overjet > 6 mm, overbite > 5 mm, scissorbite, anterior-posterior multiple teeth crossbite, Angle Class I occlusion in mixed dentition.
