Grinding teeth at 11: There's probably nothing you can do about it anyway. I would however have her teeth evaluated by a dentist to check on the degree of occlusal and incisal wear and if any treatment would be indicated. Consider an orthodontic evaluation (and possible appliance although i've never found this necessary at that age).
