In many cases, teeth grinding while sleeping can be stopped by using a mouth guard at night. Sometimes the only way to stop teeth grinding while sleeping is to address the cause, which is very often high levels of stress in one's life. In addition to damaging teeth, continual grinding of the teeth in sleep situations can lead to disorders with the jaw. During a particularly stressful period in her life, my mother began grinding her teeth while sleeping. Mild and occasional teeth-grinding does not cause much harm, however for some people who suffer from chronic bruxism and have been grinding their teeth for years, it may lead to damage to their dental and jaw health. In some circumstances, teeth grinding and clenching can wear down tooth enamel, chip teeth, increase temperature sensitivity, and cause severe facial pain and jaw problems including TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders. If stress and anxiety are the cause of your teeth grinding, the obvious solution would be to take away the stressors. When Mei started grinding her teeth again at night, I gave her extra sole and it soon stopped.
Apart from increasing our mineral intake, I also use essential oils such as valerian, lavender, Roman chamomile and oil blends known to help with teeth grinding, anxiety and stress. If teeth grinding still persists even after increasing the minerals and taking measures to reduce stress, parasites could be an issue. Also effective are Kerri Rivera’s CD protocol which has really helped with parasites, candida and bacterial overgrowth for us.

Thank you so much for sharing this article, I’m 19 years old and have been grinding my teeth for a long time. It is often caused by stress, but it can also be the result of abnormal growth of teeth or alignment issues within the mouth and jaw.
A dentist can make a mold of your teeth to create a mouth guard for use during the night; this mouth guard will keep teeth from grinding against each other, but it will also train the jaw to rest in a different position.
Elevated stress levels can disrupt your normal sleeping patterns, and while the brain is thinking about stressful events that happened during the day, the jaw tends to clamp down, leading to teeth grinding while sleeping.
The teeth may not align correctly, leading the child to bite down in such a way that the teeth grind against each other.


The term TMD is used to denote these disorders, which can lead to discomfort when a person talks, yawns or chews.
This teeth grinding in her sleep continued long enough to create some significant dental problems.
She had been grinding her teeth for several months, the dentist said that it was due to anxiety and stress, and suggested mouth-guards for her to wear while sleeping. Ikan bills is a type of Malaysian dried anchovy, which provides lots of calcium and tastes yummy. In certain countries, dairy is not a traditional part of their diet, thus they obtain their calcium needs from other foods, such as seaweed in Japan.
Especially if the grinding occurs during the full moon and comes with other symptoms commonly associated with parasites: anal itching, nightmares, mood swings, behavioural issues especially during full-moon periods, abdominal pain, diarrhoea and more. I also use the following essential oils – DiGize, Oregano, Thieves and Peppermint layered on the soles of the feet twice a day which helps with parasites as well as candida.
His mother had increased his minerals and treated him for parasites, yet the teeth grinding continued.
She explained that teeth grinding may also be a structural issue, that it could be caused by the occipital plates in the skull shifting. The first step in stopping teeth grinding while sleeping is to visit your dentist so he or she can determine the cause of the grinding.
Since teeth grinding while sleeping can lead to permanent injury to the teeth and gums, a mouth guard is necessary to prevent cracked teeth, worn enamel, and jaw pain. This is usually not too serious of an issue, as children will outgrow their teeth as they age. Eventually, she wore a night guard that protected her teeth and prevented any further dental issues. At some point, she stopped wearing the guard because she was no longer grinding her teeth. Teeth grinding and teeth clenching can contribute to orofacial myofunctional disorder (OMD) which may affect speech in children and adults. Another friend also experienced teeth grinding, and she too had to wear a mouth-guard at night. My fellow autism mothers know that walking away from the stress and pressures of raising and recovering our children with autism is not an option. She wasn’t quite sure which cell salt to choose from, so she chose Bioplasma instead, which is a combination of all 12 of the tissue salts. From there, the dentist may prescribe a mouth guard to train the jaw to stop clenching, or he or she may refer you to a psychiatrist or other mental health professional to help relieve the stress that is causing the grinding.


My older daughter, Mei, used to grind her teeth at night so loudly that I could hear it from the other room!
My dog ate my splint, and so i had to get another one made, which is quite costly…one year later (today) i made the same mistake and my dog snatched it, AGAIN! Chamomile is also a great homeopathic remedy, well-known for it’s use for children who are teething. When Mei was grinding her teeth again, my homeopath kindly made a batch of combination remedies made of several homeopathic remedies that are effective for worms. All that moving around may cause the plates in the skull to shift and adjust, and possibly contribute to teeth grinding. Of course, this is an over-simplification of the extremely complex structure of the human skeletal system and its relation to toxic insult. It will not only protect your teeth from further damages while you sleep, it will also reduce the force reaching your teeth.
This means that some organs are not getting enough calcium in the form they need it, which is as good as not getting any. While not as durable or low-profile as the versions used by dentists, it is an inexpensive alternative that can accomplish the same goal.
I was raising two daughters with autism at that time; if stress was really the only cause of teeth grinding, my teeth would be filed down to nubs.
Following her protocol, I saw a reduction in parasite symptoms including itchy bottom and wormy behaviour. The teeth grinding stopped temporarily, but came back again.
So in this instance, I use Mag Phos cell salt, which helps the body to utilise the existing magnesium in our body. Stress, anxiety, mineral deficiency, parasites, teeth alignment and cranial structure can all contribute to teeth grinding. Treating it naturally will leave a positive impact on your health. Even after doing all the other previously successful treatments, this time the teeth grinding stubbornly remained.
My fellow Thinking Mom and Team TMR co-author Shawty swears by meditation and adrenal support to manage her stress level and minimise her teeth grinding. The acidity would kill a cow if her body did not chemically buffer it, which uses up… calcium supply!
