Worn Dentition Treatment

Worn Dentition Treatment

Worn dentition, or tooth wear, is the loss of tooth enamel caused by the use of teeth for purposes other than chewing food. The most common cause of worn dentition is nighttime tooth grinding or bruxism. Grinding wears down tooth enamel and can cause cracks and chips. Grinding often occurs during sleep, so you may not even be aware that you are grinding your teeth.

Worn Dentition Treatment

Worn dentition treatment is a dental procedure that corrects teeth that have worn down over time. Worn dentition treatment can help patients of all ages, but it may be especially useful for older adults who have lost several teeth.

Worn dentition treatment is often needed because teeth naturally wear down as we get older. The enamel that protects our teeth gradually weakens, and this can cause our teeth to become vulnerable to tooth decay. If a patient has teeth that are significantly worn down, they may have difficulty eating, speaking, and smiling. These problems can negatively impact a patient’s quality of life, and patients can seek treatment to restore their smile.

How Is Worn Dentition Treated?

Worn dentition treatment varies from patient to patient, depending on the severity and cause of tooth wear. Some patients experience mild wear, while others may experience advanced wear. Mild wear can usually be treated with a simple dental procedure, such as dental crowns, dental bonding, or porcelain veneers. However, more advanced wear may require more extensive treatment, such as restorative dental treatments, such as dental crowns, bridges, and root canals. If you suffer from worn dentition, please consult your dentist to receive a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

Is A Worn Dentition Treatment Right For Me?

If your teeth are worn, you may be experiencing symptoms like sensitivity, tooth pain, tooth erosion, jaw pain, or headaches. A worn dentition treatment is a good idea if your teeth are worn down due to bruxism (i.e., teeth grinding), age, or poor oral hygiene.
