Should we see make a special visit to the dentist about our six year old's teeth grinding? Bruxism runs in our family, but I've also heard that if a child is this young, then teeth grinding might not be a huge concern..
All the previous answers about growth and development are absolutely correct. Bruxism is common.
However if your child also snores a lot and seems tired during the day, or has problems concentrating, then this can be a sleep apnea problem and this needs to be evaluated. Tonsils are the most common cause. ...Read more

You must go back to your dentist, have it inspected, and have it replaced as needed. ...Read more

Coming: Coming off benzodiazepines is dangerous because withdrawal can include unstable vital signs and seizures. You need to be seen and assessed. Depending on how long you have been off of the alprazolam, you may be done with the withdrawal. If so, there are other safer medications for panic attacks that are nonaddictive so you won't go through this again. Please be seen medically so that you can safely taper the Alprazolam and then hopefully switch to a non-addictive medication. There are free mental health clinics that can help you as well. ...Read more

Usually Yes: Search for the true cause of the grinding, as there are many causes, and then treat the cause. At times the nasal passages can be blocked or congested due to allergy, inflammation or infection causing the patient wiggle his jaw to try to open up his airway. At times allergy itself can directly cause irritation. Some common medications for colds and cough can cause grinding as a side effect. ...Read more

Occlusal splints are generally appreciated to prevent tooth wear and injury and perhaps reduce night time clenching or grinding behavior rather than altering a causative malocclusion. In addition, they are unlikely to significantly reducing nocturnal behavior. ...Read more
