: My 9 mnth old son has 5 teeth,3 top and 2 bottom. Lately he's taken to grinding his teeth. Is this just part of teething? And will it create any problems with his new teeth?
My daughter turns 4 years old and still grinds her teeth at night and sometimes during the day. The dentist is not very concerned with it right now. When her big teeth develop she will have to wear a plastic mouth piece. Which I also were to protect them from grinding them down. Its not all bad. Just takes time to get use to.
