Clenching or grinding of the teeth, which we refer to as bruxism, is a genetically predisposed behavior and will continue throughout the course of one’s lifetime. If you or your husband clench their teeth, then it is very likely that your children, or at least 50% of them, will clench or grind their teeth. If your child is young, then they can wear a simple device at night to prevent the damage associated with clenching, however, that device will have to be replaced at least once every 18 to 24 months. If your child is 16 or above, in all likelihood a device can be made that could be worn for many years without being replaced frequently. In our office, we literally make hundreds of these types of appliances because bruxism is a very common phenomena.
