Teeth grinding is an unpleasant reality for some kids. A dentist will refer to grinding teeth as bruxism, which is the clenching and grinding of the teeth affecting about 30% of children. This is an abnormal condition, which is usually outgrown. In the meantime, the teeth will need to be protected against any damage while asleep. A quick visit to The Dental Ark, an eastside dentist in El Paso, can provide you with helpful strategies in treating bruxism.
