This Weeks Oral Health Message to you from Dr. Max:


"Hi this is Dr. Max,

Have you ever heard your child making a loud unusual noise in their sleep that you couldn’t understand?  It could be a common habit of Bruxism better known as “Teeth Grinding.” Children who grind their teeth may also do it during the day, but then of course it is more noticeable. Often the child is not aware that they are grinding their teeth, and for the most part it is believed to be something that the child will grow out of.  However, as parents you should know that there are several things that can contribute to your child developing this habit, such as emotional stress.  Also, if he or she practices poor dietary habits like drinking soda, teeth grinding can accelerate problems such as teeth ware, pain and trouble sleeping. It is also proven that certain medications given to a child who grinds their teeth may create additional problems. If any of this is a concern, please see your dentist for treatment options.

Thank you for visiting our site.  I hope to see you in the office soon!"
