Does teeth grinding past infancy happen in children more that have sensory issues? My dd has done this since she first got teeth and continues to every night. Her dentist said a lot of kids do if they're stressed. (she's been stressed every night for four years?
)

I was a horrible teeth grinder, up into high school. (No one wanted to sleepover when I was younger it was so bad!) Both my boys grind theirs too (Its hereditary. Only my oldest has some sensory issues and I myself have none, so that wasnt my excuse) I read its stress also, but Im not so sure its the ONLY cause.

Our ds does. Our dentist said a lot of kids do and they out grow it usually by 8 or 9.

I hadn't linked it to his sensory stuff, but I wonder?
