Some children are fitted with night guards – plastic appliances inserted inside the mouth, which stop grinding and clenching of teeth during sleep. However, dentists usually recommend this only when the child is about 6 years of age or has developed some permanent teeth.
Teeth grinding is something which shouldn’t really alarm you. Give your toddler some time, and slowly he/she will grow out of this habit.
