Tooth Grinding

Tooth Grinding (aka bruxism) is common in children, especially under 7 years old.  While children are young, before there are permanent teeth present, their bites are flexible and change as they grow.  Children may grind due to an abnormal bite or the placement of the teeth.  Once the first permanent molars erupt at about 6 years old, the permanent bite begins to establish itself and tooth grinding tends to subside.  Stress related grinding is common in middle-school and high-school aged students, especially during testing or final exams.  Dr. Hoban will monitor your child’s bite as well as chipping and wear patterns on the teeth.  She may recommend treatment or a mouthguard when appropriate.
