My Son Grinds His Teeth At Night While He Is Sleep What Can I Do
Stress: Believe it or not, small children experience stress in their lives just as we do. The most common reason to grind the teeth is stress related. However, another cause is due to eruption of teeth. This could be a normal body response to dealing with the change in the bite as they lose baby teeth and get adult teeth.

Yes: Unfortunately for the parents, it is very common. Sounds terrible and worrisome, but is common. Check to be sure he has not chipped any teeth from this. He should be seen by a pediatric dentist now to check his mouth and teeth and to get him used to seeing the dentist -- especially when it is new and easy and fun.
