Grinding teeth .
Hi, My daughter is grinding her teeth when asleep and she also sleeps with her eyes half closed. Is this normal? What's the solution? She is a very light sleeper too. Thanks, Nawaz.

Hello...... Kids might grind their teeth as a way to ease the pain..make sure child is not doing any damage to tooth or tongue... teeth grinding can be caused by stress and anxiety, it often occurs during sleep,chronic teeth grinding can result in a fracturing, loosening, or loss of teeth.dentist can fit her with a mouth guard to protect teeth.
