Why is my child grinding their teeth?

It can be a little alarming when your baby or child clenches their teeth and grind them. While the sounds of a baby grinding teeth can make you cringe and you might worry if they’re damaging those newly erupted pearly whites, it’s very common and usually completely normal.

Adults can often grind as well which they can get a night guard to protect the teeth from damage. But children are growing, and would outgrow one very fast, so this isn't as much of an option for them.

Sometimes children grind as they are just growing and the bite is setting in.  Sometimes its just a habit like sleep walking. Other times, we've seen it associated with enlarged tonsils, snoring and even sleep apnea. When we snore we are cutting off oxygen to the brain that we would get by breathing normally. The brain needs plenty to produce hormones that help us recover and feel more alert during the daytime. Children could be clenching or grinding without knowing why as it has a result of stiffening their airway, thus allowing that air to pass better when sleeping.

What can we do? Studies have shown that temporary pads can be placed on the teeth to protect them from clenching too much and opening their bite. This allows more air to pass when breathing at night. They are called bite turbos or bite blocks which we use often here in the office. A bite block's main function is to correct a misaligned bite which would help open up the airway as well for the child.

Is it normal to bleed after seeing the dentist?

There are many causes of bleeding gums. Most of these can easily be fixed, but some can also be a sign of more serious oral issues needing to be addressed.

Many people get nervous when they see blood of any kind, but it's pretty common for gums to bleed. However, that does not mean it's a good thing.

The most common reason for bleeding gums is due to 'gingivitis' which is a mild infection of the gumline where buildup of plaque is at its earliest stage. Your gums become swollen, tender, and can bleed during brushing or flossing. We see this quite often, and in simple terms, it tells us that these areas need to be cleaned better. Brushing and flossing thoroughly and consistently usually resolves this. Regular exams allow us to help you in identifying these areas and we can give you tips on how to improve what you’re doing at home! During regular cleanings, we can then remove anything you are missing at home allowing your gums to remain healthy and happy!

The next thing we see is periodontal disease, which is a chronic infection in the gums due to years of infection and inflammation near the gums resulting in bone loss around the teeth. These patients will always need to keep up with their cleanings and most tend to visit every 3 months to stay on top of the disease. If it's been years for these patients since the last cleaning, their gums will likely bleed after removing the tartar from their teeth, but they will be on their way to becoming healthier!

For a lot of dental treatment we are able to send you home knowing that you won't have any bleeding. However, for some procedures like removing a tooth, there will definitely be bleeding. Oozing or bleeding can last up to 48 hours after treatment and is normal. Use gauze as directed. Alternatively, a home remedy is placing a tea bag on the area to help it clot.

Another reason gums bleed after dental work could be that the tooth being treated was near the gums. When this happens it heals pretty quickly due to the nature of the gum tissue.

When you need dental treatment, we go over the "post-op expectations" with you so that you are prepared. We also remind you that when we have to numb your mouth for your dental treatment, it is vital not to put your hands in your mouth or eat/drink until your mouth “wakes up.” If you don't wait, you could accidentally harm your gums, cheeks, or tongue, as you cannot feel them. This could also cause unexpected bleeding.

Is biting your nails bad for your teeth?

Biting anything that is not food is terrible for our teeth! The grinding friction of teeth against nails can gradually wear the enamel away, or even cause teeth to chip or crack.

In addition to leaving the nails torn, uneven, and doing damage to the nail beds, nail biting can lead to a variety of oral health complications. Dirt and germs get trapped under our fingernails, and when we chew on them, that all gets transferred to our mouths, which can result in gum disease. Nails, plastic, clothes, anything you don't intend on swallowing should be avoided completely. A nail biting habit can increase a person’s risk of developing a chronic teeth-grinding habit as well, which comes with even more oral health problems, along with headaches and soreness.

What are some ways to prevent it? We've heard a lot of solutions like, gels painted on the nails that taste bitter or spicy, trimming your nails regularly, getting a manicure or stopping as a gradual process, choosing one nail at a time to stop biting.

Are electric toothbrushes better?

While we recommend electric toothbrushes and offer them in our office, we believe that something is better than nothing of course.  Electric, or Sonicare, toothbrushes do part of the work for you by creating the circular motion or vibration of brushing with a regular toothbrush. For kids, we like them to get used to the motion of electric toothbrushes, and we find that these kids behave better at their appointments because it's not as big of a difference for them. Electric toothbrushes make it more likely to brush for the recommended amount of time since they all generally have a timer on them for 2 minutes.

So why do we suggest them? Not because they clean your teeth better than if you brushed properly with a manual toothbrush. But it makes the process of brushing more consistent and for the appropriate time, each time. Also for children, some electric toothbrushes can be paired to a phone app. This makes it engaging and less like a tedious task that they have to do and more of an enjoyable experience to have fun with. We have also seen other ‘toothbrushes’ in different shapes that generally we won't recommend at all due to the fact that they rarely even reach the gumline in most cases and can lead to decay, gingivitis, and even periodontal disease.

Why are baby teeth important?

Many people believe losing baby teeth before their time is not a big deal. Other teeth will grow in later, so why do they matter?

The truth is baby teeth help your child learn to chew and speak properly, and they act as place holders for permanent teeth, leading the way for adult teeth to come in correctly. Additionally, decay or bacteria can spread from a baby tooth to the adult tooth below the gumline and compromise that tooth before it has a chance to emerge healthily.

Wiping your baby’s gums with a damp cloth in infancy to clear away bacteria and establishing good brushing habits when teeth emerge is a great way to shelter baby teeth that, in turn, protect adult teeth.

It’s also important to visit Justin Mund, DDS regularly for exams and visit out Fort Worth, TX dental office for twice-yearly cleanings at Dr. Mund’s earliest recommendation.

Remember, baby teeth set the stage for adult teeth, so caring for these early teeth is vital for your child’s long-term dental health.

How often should I visit Smile Ninja Dental & Orthodontics for a checkup?

For most patients, we recommend a dental checkup and cleaning every six months. Regular visits ensure early detection and treatment of potential dental issues.

What is the difference between a cavity filling and a crown?

A cavity filling is used to repair a small area of tooth decay, while a crown (or cap) covers and strengthens a tooth that might be damaged or decayed beyond what a filling can repair.

Is a root canal painful?

Modern root canal procedures are designed to be as comfortable as possible. At Smile Ninja Dental & Orthodontics, we use advanced techniques and anesthesia to ensure minimal discomfort during and after the procedure.

When is tooth extraction necessary?

Tooth extractions may be recommended for various reasons, including severe decay, infection, crowding, or damage beyond repair. We ensure a smooth process with a focus on patient comfort.

What are the signs that I might need wisdom tooth removal?

Signs that you might need your wisdom teeth removed include pain, swelling, infections in the back of your mouth, or teeth crowding. However, an examination and X-ray at our office will give a clear indication.

Can I schedule a joint appointment for my child and me?

Yes! We are all about family dentistry. Feel free to set up joint appointments for your convenience and to make dental care a family affair.

What should I do in the event of a dental emergency?

In case of a dental emergency, such as a broken tooth or severe pain, contact us immediately. We'll guide you on the next steps and ensure you get the care you need as soon as possible.

How can I maintain good oral health between checkups?

Regular brushing (at least twice daily), flossing daily, maintaining a balanced diet, and avoiding excessive sugary foods and drinks are essential. Regular checkups and cleanings at Smile Ninja Dental & Orthodontics will also play a pivotal role.
