    Default Teeth grinding

    I've noticed my 4 year old is grinding her teeth while she's sleeping. She doesn't do it all the time but I have noticed it numerous times over the last month. Just wondering if anyone has an tips or advice on what I should do?

    Jasper went through a phase of doing it around 2ish. I read up on it then, but I have nothing quotable because it's been so so long since he's done it, but apparently it's normal and lots of toddlers/preschoolers do it at some stage.

    Though maybe give health direct/gp a call and see what they say?

    There is a link between night time teeth grinding and worms.. Perhaps worm the whole family and see if that helps..

    Thanks for the info about worms. I saw her scratching her bottom so I bought some worm tablets so I'll give that a go & see if it helps.
