My children snore and/or grind their teeth. Is it normal?

No. Snoring and grinding is not normal for anyone, especially in children. Usually it is due to an airway obstruction such as enlarged adenoids and tonsils or incorrect jaw positioning affecting facial structures and underlying airways.

Children who snore or grind their teeth tend to have shorter attention spans, become hyperactive and moody in nature, perform poorly at school and have bed wetting tendencies.

If you’re child does snore or grind their teeth, contact Healthy Smile Centre immediately to see an experienced clinician who has an understanding in orofacial orthopaedics.
