Q:

My child is grinding her teeth while sleeping very oftenly she does, can you tell me the reason and remedies for the same. I am worried.



hey fatima this does happen at times.

Decrease your child's stress, especially just before bed. Try massage and stretching exercises to relax the muscles. Make sure your child's diet includes plenty of water. ... Ask your dentist to monitor your child's teeth if they are a grinder.

It could be due to stress or bad dreams. Try relaxing your kid cuddle her, give her a cozy bedroom environment, give her lots of pillows to feel safe, massage her . Also go for detail checkups as this habit may damage the teeth

I heartily thank you for your reply, which eased me a lot.
