ur son is suffering from night bruxism. this can be due to excessive stressful lifestyle, psychological probs, hyperactive jaw muscles. visit a dentist to knw the cause of this prob n get treated acvordingly. also ask for night guards which has to worn while sleeping. this 'll prevent damage to ur teeth due to repetitive grinding.
