Help on getting my son to stop chewing his crib when nothing seems to work

My son has been chewing his crib forever now, and is only 18 months old. Yes he is teething, but he also did it when he wasn't teething. I have the cloth rail guards from Babies R Us, and he slides them aside, the plastic guards won't fit on his crib. I put a teething toy in his crib to help at night, and he also has a security blanket that he has to have or he won't go to sleep. He also has a high pitch screaming problem that he has been doing since he was 6 months old, and nothing seems to be breaking him of that habit. Could these 2 things be tied together, as some sort of relief for pain, or are they not linked at all? I am all for putting him into a toddler bed, but our house is wired wrong and the wires for the ceiling fan runs down his wall, and plugs in there. I am so scared that one day I am going to go in and he has a huge splinter in his mouth, I had to take one out of his chin today. Please help
