Grinding Teeth....

My just turned 2 year old has recently started grinding his teeth. I don't really know why and I am pretty sure he is doing it in purpose. The sound of it drives me crazy!!! Are anybody else kids' grinding their teeth? Any suggestions to get him to stop doing it. Thanks!!

My son is 5 and he has been grinding his teeth in his sleep for about 3 years now. I have spoken to his dentist and he said there is really nothing you can do or to worry about until he gets his adult teeth. It too drives me crazy, I cannot stand the sound. He grinds so bad that i can hear him from the other end of the house at night.

My son used to do it all the time! It would drive me crazy! He has stopped now it only lasted a couple of weeks. If you are really concerned you can talk to his dentist. But I don't know if they can do much. It is probably just a phase like my son went through, and he doesn't even really realize what he is doing just that it is different and it makes a cool sound. Trust me I know how ear splitting it is! Just hang in there he will get over this soon.
