Teeth grinding is a harmful habit irrespective of age, but it can be especially dangerous during childhood as it can affect the child’s future dental health. The first symptom can be a morning headache.

Key takeaways:

– Teeth grinding is often caused by anxiety and stress, so addressing this can make the grinding stop.

– Grinding can also be caused by a misaligned bite, which should be treated by a dentist.

– Have your child use a night mouthguard until the root of the problem is identified.

More importantly, make sure you speak to your child’s dentist and seek prompt treatment.
