Why should we be aware of TEETH WEAR???

           we should be aware of things that causes problem to our teeth!!
not only tooth decay causes problem there are many things that causes discomfort .
among those things teeth wear is also one among them.

WHAT IS TEETH WEAR???


Teeth wear in general- loss of teeth structures.
Its types includes:

  • Attrition
  • Abrasion
  • Erosion
  • Abfraction

It may occur over  any surfaces(front or back) including height
It occurs in childhood and old age group
It may worn off the teeth

WHAT WILL BE THE CAUSE OF TEETH WEAR??

          This question will definitely arise from everyone
while knowing the cause for teeth wear we should be responsible to prevent teeth wear
in order to protect the teeth from damage

  1. Systemic cause -night grinding ,GERD (Stomach problem)
  2. Dietary habits(intake of citrus fruits,pickles ,soft drinks , salt and vinegar crisp,sports drinks,CARBONATED BEVERAGES)
  3. Irregular teeth arrangement,faulty fillings.
  4. other habits - holding of soft drinks in the mouth before swallowing, improper brushing.              

WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF TEETH WEAR IS NOT TREATED????

  • exposure of internal teeth structure
  • sensitivity
  • pain 
  • gum diseases          

Our saliva present in the mouth has a good buffering property, in case of acidic ph it reduces and provides minerals for strengthening the teeth structure.but in certain people-gastric acid causes loss of teeth structure at the back side of the teeth . Here the Dentist will help you to manage the teeth wear
