I get a lot of questions about teeth grinding. About a third of children grind their teeth at some point in their first couple years of life and most of the time this is related to teething. Some kids grind their teeth when they are awake, but most grind their teeth as they fall asleep or even throughout the night.
Because most teeth grinding happens as a result of teething, it comes to a predictable end after the 2-year molars have erupted.
