Causes of Your Child's Teeth Grinding and How to Prevent it

Teeth grinding can lead to worn teeth and gum inflammation, with children’s newly forming adult teeth especially at risk. Also known as bruxism, you should consult a dentist if you think this is affecting your child. A morning headache is often the first symptom.

Key takeaways:

– A misaligned bite can be painful and your child’s teeth grinding may be a reaction to this pain.
