The Relationship Between Mental Health and Childhood Bruxism

Stress plays an important role in oral health, particularly in children who grind their teeth. A morning headache is often the first symptom. Speak with your dentist to find answers to this problem, and explore ways to help decrease your child’s stress.

Key takeaways:

– Children who are tense are more likely to grind their teeth.

– The same holds true for conditions such as ADHD.

– Treatment is critical to help preserve the child’s teeth.

“If your child is experiencing stress at home or at school, he or she may be grinding their teeth as a result.”
