ratings and reviews)
Dental abrasion results in loss of tooth enamel, a part of the tooth or even complete tooth because of some kind of foreign mechanical force. Some of the visible symptoms of the same include breakage or chipping of tooth, loss of teeth, etc. due to an accident or injury. Abrasion can happen because of wrong toothpaste or toothpicks too.
HOW IS DENTAL ABRASION DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosing early forms of erosion is difficult, as it is accompanied by few signs and fewer if any symptoms. There is no device available in routine dental practice for the specific detection of dental erosion and its progression. Therefore, clinical appearance is the most important feature for dental professionals to diagnose this condition.
HOW IS DENTAL ABRASION TREATED?
Modification of oral hygiene habit (such as avoiding overzealous brushing, use of soft bristle toothbrush) is important to prevent further progression. Existing abrasion cavities can be restored by dental fillings, composite and glass ionomer are both commonly used materials for such cavities. For severe abrasion which involves pulp of the tooth, root canal treatment may be needed
