What Are Dental Abrasions?
A dental abrasion is an irregular wearing down of the tooth’s surface. The abrasion usually presents itself as a v-shaped nick on the bottom of your tooth. There are many habits and practices that can lead to dental abrasions, such as:
- Frequently consuming foods and beverages that contain lots of acid
- Poorly-fitted dental clasps on your dentures
- Using too much strength while brushing your teeth
- Mouth piercings that scratch your teeth
- Utilizing a hard-bristle toothbrush on a daily basis
Symptoms of Dental Abrasions
Dental abrasions are capable of creating serious dental health issues, including exposing and damaging your tissue and nerves. Abrasions can also make your smile look tired and worn out. Some signs of a dental abrasion to look out for include:
- Uncommon tooth sensitivity to the cold or heat
- Tiny v-shaped dents that show up on the bottom of your tooth
- Sore or uncomfortable gums
- Uncomfortable tooth pain
