What Causes Children to Grind Teeth?

Bruxism, the habit of grinding the teeth, is a fairly common condition among both adults and children and can cause serious dental damage if left untreated. This is particularly true for children whose teeth are still forming. A morning headache is often the first symptom.

Bruxism can be a result of medical, dental or psychological conditions including:

– Stress

– Hyperactivity

– Misaligned bite

Teeth grinding can be cured but “treating the underlying cause is essential” for any treatment to be fully effective. A detailed article on the causes and cures for bruxism in children can be read at  https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/how-to-prevent-and-treat-your-childs-teeth-grinding/
