We are used to hear that when children grind their teeth, there are surely parasites. My daughter, now 12 years old, has always suffered from this, although less so, I was anxious and wanted to deworm her at all times until I went to a doctor's office and he told me about BRUXISM.

Bruxism is the name given to the act of grinding or clenching the teeth, which can occur both during the day and during sleep.

Bruxism also affects children, especially up to the age of 6, and its cause can be caused by several factors.

It has been observed that bruxism may be related to respiratory problems such as allergic rhinitis and asthma. As well as disorders such as anxiety, hyperactivity and attention deficit.

Parents should be alert to possible signs such as abnormal tooth wear, TMJ cracking or pain, and the child's habits of grinding teeth while sleeping or awake.

The use of plates can be implemented to prevent excessive tooth wear, however, there must be strict clinical follow-up to ensure that there is no interference with the patient's growth.

It is very important that, when parents suspect this condition in their children, they seek a pediatric dentist, since bruxism can have consequences on the teeth, such as fractures, wear, sensitivity and also influence the quality of life and sleep of the child ... .
