Teeth grinding is a habit that can harm teeth and gums and even lead to tooth loss and can be particularly harmful for children as the teeth are still forming. A morning headache is often the first symptom. Talk to your dentist about treatment to help protect your child’s teeth.
Depending on the cause, the dentist has several treatment options available:
– A mouthguard to be worn at night
– Possible fitting of braces
– Possible referral to a paediatrician or psychiatrist
