My 2 year old has decided that grinding his teeth is fun...

he has Autism and I have offered him chewies, but he doesn't use them. Any other ideas? Thank you!

  • I definitely agree with previous poster. I know dentists will make them to custom fit their mouth. It will help keep your LO from ruining their teeth! In the meantime, good luck!
