Tooth wear management

Tooth wear is a common dental condition that occurs naturally over time, but when it occurs at an accelerated rate, it can lead to irreversible loss of tooth structure. Tooth grinding, clenching, and habitual biting on hard objects are physical factors that can contribute to tooth wear. Frequent consumption of acidic foods and drinks can also cause tooth wear. Tooth wear can result in sensitivity, chipping or cracking of teeth, changes in bite, and even tooth loss in severe cases.

The treatment for tooth wear depends on the severity and cause of the wear. It may involve restorative treatments like fillings or crowns, and lifestyle changes like avoiding certain foods and beverages. Wearing a mouthguard can help prevent tooth grinding.
