Grinding teeth, bruxism. Did hydrotherapy. Given paracetamol. What is wrong?

My sone turned 2 today and since yesterday he has been grinding his teeth (bruxism) more than normal because it was contious.

He has been so clingy to me and discovered his was offside in the sense it was high 38.6.i administered paracetamol and also i did a hydrotherapy for him(bathing him with close to cold water).

Seemed as if it had worked For few minutes but during the night hes hot again. I just checked his temperature and its 38.8 now.

What wrong with my son?

Hello and welcome.

As per the given history,it appears your son has temporary Bruxism.

It is very much normal at this age.There is continuous irritation in childs mouth due to erupting new teeth.

Thus they take up to such habits like grinding the teeth.

Its nice that you are well aware and keeping a good track on his activities.slowly the child will leave this habit.In case if you find this, continues even after the age of three then you must see Paedodontist(child specialist)in this regard.

Regarding rise in temperature,you can visit your dentist once.Even mild rise in temperature is normal during teething,but its better to see your dentist once for clinical evaluation.

Take care.
