Health Tip: Grinding Teeth During Sleep

(HealthDay News) -- 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.
