Teeth grinding 7 month old

I know this isn't pregnancy related but this is the board that gets the most traffic and I know and trust a lot of you ladies.

My 7 month old has 5 teeth. 3 on the bottom and the top front 2. She grinds her teeth together. How do I get her to stop? Has anyone else ever had this problem. I have thought about calling a dentist and asking them. I don't know what kind of harm this will do to her teeth either.

Apparently it's common among babies when they first start to get teeth and sounds worse than it really is. It doesn't hurt to get them checked out, but it probably won't cause any damage.

I dont think it will harm them. My two year old used to do the same thing. I think the pressure makes them feel better. But now that he has teeth you can take him to the dentist to have his teeth checked.
