  1. Hi and thank you for posting.There is no exact reason known for teeth grinding but few possible causes are improperly aligned teeth,nutritional deficiencies,worm infestations,enlarged tonsils,endocrine disorders,anxiety and stress.Children generally outgrow the condition and treatment is usually not recommended.Please ensure sufficient intake of water and fluids in your baby's diet.Try to minimise any stress or anxiety if present in your child by talking to him.If the habit is causing trouble or/and excessive tooth wear then get your child examined.If there are any nutritional defficiencies doctor will prescribe medications for it.He may also need a Dental examination.I hope this helps.Please feel free to write back to us.
