In un articolo medico si spiega che sono stati esaminati due campioni di persone che presentano:
1) bruxismo, 2) serramento, 3) bruxismo e serramento

Explanation:
Bruxism and clenching

http://www.drloisjames.com/bruxism-clenching.htm

'Bruxism is another word for grinding of the teeth. Clenching is static (non-moving) contact of your upper and lower teeth using the "closing" muscles of the jaw. Both actions are defined as parafunctional, which means that both bruxism and clenching of the jaw are dysfunctional habits that have the ability to cause harm to your teeth and your masticatory (chewing) system.'
