Dental abrasions are not only cosmetically unappealing, but they can also cause disruptive and serious damage to your overall health. That is why our office provides the very best in dental abrasion treatment, so your smile can continue feeling and looking amazing.

What Is Dental Abrasion?

Dental abrasion occurs when your tooth's surface has suffered an abnormal amount of wearing down from some external force and begins to lose enamel. It typically shows up as a v-shaped nick present on the bottom of your tooth, over time.

As tooth enamel gets worn, your smile becomes vulnerable to plaque and bacteria, specifically the innermost layer, the pulp of the tooth. Once plaque and bacteria reach this area, severe infection can occur that could lead to tooth loss or extraction.

What Causes Dental Abrasion?

A dental abrasion can be caused by many harmful factors and habits, including:

  • Brushing your teeth with too much force
  • Regularly consuming food and beverages with a high acid content
  • Piercings in the mouth that hit against teeth
  • Utilizing a toothbrush with hard bristles
  • Clasps on your dentures that are ill-fitting

What are Signs of Dental Abrasion?

A dental abrasion can lead to very serious and disruptive oral health problems, including exposure and damage to your nerves and tissue. Dental abrasions are also unattractive and can have a negative impact on your appearance. Some symptoms to look out for include:

  • Consistent and disruptive pain in your teeth
  • A sore and uncomfortable feeling present in your gums
  • Heightened tooth sensitivity to hot and cold food and beverages
  • The appearance of tiny v-shaped dents on the bottom of your tooth, close to the gum line

How are Dental Abrasions Treated?

Once tooth enamel is lost, it cannot be repaired. This makes dental abrasion a bit trickier than other dental issues. The first step is to identify the cause and take essential steps to stop further damage.

If, for example, a patient’s dental abrasions were causes by teeth clenching, wearing a night guard would be the recommended course of action.

For severe abrasions that need a dentist, treatments could include using fillings, veneers, or crowns to protect the tooth from further damage and improve the appearance of your overall smile.

How Much Does Dental Abrasion Treatment Cost?

There is no standard treatment of dental abrasion. A patient could need fluoride treatment or may require a new dental crown to cover extensive damage.
