DS has been grinding his teeth for the past couple weeks now.  He's thirteen months old and I have no clue how to get him to stop.  Any ideas??

My daughter grinded her teeth til she was about 6. I took her to 2 different dentist and they both told me that it was common for children to grind their teeth. She is almost 9 and has stopped doing it completely. BTW the dentist I take her too says her teeth show no wear from the grinding.

My dentist just told me this past Friday that there is nothing you can do for kids who grind their teeth. When they get older they can be fitted with a mouth gard for sleep at night to stop it but for now there is nothing that can be done!

Thx ladies.  I just got off the phone with my mom (after trying to get ahold of her for the past week) and she said that I grinded my teeth when I was a baby but that I stopped after my teeth came and she thinks that since DS is teething that's why he's grinding his teeth.

Try a teething ring, or get one of those tooth-gaurds, in the sports department.

We've had teething rings for him for a while but he just won't use them.

Although my son has sensory issues that causes him to severly grind his teeth I was going to say..that sometimes it helps if you massage their jaw.  Doesn't always work..but worth a try.  My son's teeth have been grinded to the gumline almost...sigh.
