Bruxism or night grinding is quite common and could be due to various reasons.
Get a nightguard fabricated by a dentist which can be easily slipped onto the teeth at night before bedtime.
Hi.. visit a nearest specialist to design a night guard made of silicon for her. Wrong teeth alignment is the cause. She might need a appliance as well and braces once she reaches 12 years. Visit a orthodontist.
It seems that she suffers from bruxism.Bruxism is the habit of either grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw. Itâs not the same as normal teeth grinding though, such as when eating. It happens involuntarily and automatically.

Most kids outgrow bruxism, but a combination of parental observation and dental visits can help keep the problem in check until they do. In cases where the grinding and clenching make a child's face and jaw sore or damage the teeth, dentists may prescribe a special night guard. Molded to a child's teeth, the night guard is similar to the protective mouthpieces worn by athletes. Though a mouthpiece can take some getting used to, positive results happen quickly.
this can be hereditary or due to hyperactive child. refrain your child from watching action and violent cartoon movies. calm her down and make her listen to music before sleeping. consult a dentist and ask for night guard. your daughter can also have hot water bath before sleeping.
She is having a problem called BRUXISIM. it might be little complex for you to understand the causes. But it is not a very serious concern. you can ask your dentist to make a soft night guard.
