My toddler (20 months old) grinds his teeth. I heard that this is a sign of worms but when I asked about it, I was told it is usually only a sign of worms if it happens in their sleep (which it doesn't). My toddler just seems to like grinding his teeth and it sounds REALLy bad. Any other parents out there with experience with this? How do I stop it, or should I not worry since they are baby teeth? SHould I take him to a doctor/dentist? Any advice would be appreciated!
Haha, never heard the worm theory! My daughter started doing it from a very young age every time she was teething, she has all her teeth now but still does it occassionally, I think she likes the feel of it! The sound of it goes right through me though...it's horrible! we did start to ask her not to do it as she would hurt her teeth but as defiant as she is, this just made her do it more!!! We have now chosen to ignore it, she is 2 years old & probably overdue for a trip to the dentist so I am going to make her an appointment (get her into it early...don't want her to end up scared like her mum)! I will mention it to him.
