Tooth Wear Treatment at Center One Dental Clinic
Tooth Wear is the loss of tooth surface, which is not caused by decay or by an injury. Tooth wear is a very common condition that occurs in approximately 97% of the population as per recent Wikipedia stats.
There are three major categories of Tooth Wear:
- Attrition – Attrition Occurs when tooth wear results from other teeth
- Abrasion - Abrasion is the wearing away of tooth surface caused by friction. This happens when teeth are brushed too vigorously in sweeping horizontal strokes
- Erosion - Erosion is the wearing away of tooth surface by an acid, which dissolves the enamel
Proper management of tooth wear involves a thorough case history, clinical examination, prevention and reconstruction, when necessary.
At Center One Dental clinic, we perform a clinical examination to suggest patients the best way to deal with tooth wear.
