Teeth Grinding Treatment

in Manhattan

Teeth grinding, also known as Bruxism, is the process of clenching your jaw and grinding your teeth at night. This is a very common trait in children that could lead to issues in the future.

How do I Know if My Child is Grinding Their Teeth?

There are a few signs of teeth grinding that you may notice your child exhibiting:

  • Waking up with a sore jaw
  • Popping or clicking the jaw sounds throughout the day
  • Headaches
  • Earaches
  • Tenderness in the Jaw

Grinding of the teeth could lead to wearing down the enamel as well as wearing down the overall shape of their teeth causing severe dental damage if not prevented.

Bruxism Treatment
