  • Do you hear it or see it?

    Some people are what is called CNS grinders; meaning it is a central nervous system issue that is involuntary. Have you tried a pacifier?

  • my mom always told us how my oldest brother refused to take a pacifier. She said instead of the pacifier, she would stuff one of his bottle nipples with cotton and he sucked on that.

  • lots of time it's temporary as they get used to having teeth in their mouth. it's something new they are adjusting to.
