31 for 21 - Mouth Piece

Cameron has developed the horrible habit of grinding his teeth.  It drives me crazy!  First it was clacking his teeth and then he moved onto this grinding that is akin to scratching fingernails on a chalkboard.  I've tried giving him chewies for resistance in case it was sensory, reminded him to open his mouth in case it was an oral motor issue, and tried to make sure he had more structured time in case it was boredom.  Nothing worked except to drive me to the point of wanting ear plugs.  Someone told me about a mouth piece that can help children with Down Syndrome with teeth grinding, tongue thrust, jaw strength, etc.  At this point it didn't matter how much it cost, I wanted it!  So Cameron's myomunchie is on it's way.  It will be here on Wednesday and I can't wait.  I'll have to let you know how well it works once we get a chance to start using it.  Oh I can't WAIT!

  1. PLEASE let me know how this goes. Tim GRINDS and I don't know how much I can take.


  2. Justine, we just got the Myomunchie and he's loving it. He's only supposed to wear it 2 minutes twice a day to start and I can't get it out of his mouth. We will see if it helps.

  3. Please share how you are using it. We ordered one but did not get instructions! Thanks!
