It’s estimated anywhere from 15 to 33 percent of children grind their teeth at night, however, many parents are unaware their children are doing so. Children often grind their teeth when their baby teeth begin to emerge or when their permanent teeth begin to come in. Most children will outgrow teeth grinding, but if they don’t they will require intervention to prevent tooth damage and complications into adulthood. As a pediatric dentist in Birmingham, we offer intervention services to help children stop grinding their teeth at night.
