There is no home remedy to cure bruxism and clenching.seeing a tmj specialist is advised.

The dentist can make him a mouth guard to wear at night or you can buy one at the drug store.  I would ask your pharmacist about them, I believe you put it in hot water and have him bite down with it in his mouth to make it fit his mouth. It won't be as good a fit as if the dentist had made it but hopefully it will do the job.Tooth grinding is common and he may outgrow it. Hope this helps.
