Grinding Teeth During Sleep

If you or a child in your family suffers with teeth grinding, it is important to see a dentist as soon as possible to avoid damage to teeth. Thanks for visiting us at Texarkana Endodontics.

Grinding of the teeth during sleep -- medically called bruxism-- is a common problem, especially among children.

Often outgrown, the practice can still damage teeth, so it's important for parents to recognize the warning signs.

The American Academy of Family Physicians mentions these examples:

  • Hearing a grinding sound during the child's sleep.
  • Having your child complain of jaw or facial pain, especially during the morning.
  • Noticing that your child has chipped or worn teeth. These symptoms should be evaluated by a dentist without delay.
