What Are Dental Abrasions?
A dental abrasion occurs when your tooth’s surface is wearing down at an unusually fast rate. They usually present themselves as v-shaped indents, located at the bottom of your tooth. Many unhealthy dental habits and factors can lead to the appearance of a dental abrasion, such as:
- Having mouth piercings that hit against your teeth
- Using too much strength while brushing your teeth
- Dental clasps on dentures that don’t fit properly
- Drinking and eating highly acidic foods and beverages often
- Using a hard bristle toothbrush when brushing
Symptoms of Dental Abrasions
Dental abrasions can not only disrupt your life but can also create serious oral complications such as nerve and tissue exposure and damage. A dental abrasion can also make your smile and overall appearance look worn down and tired. Some symptoms that could be indicative of a dental abrasion are:
- Very small, v-shaped nicks that have popped up on the bottom of your teeth, near the gum line.
- Pain in your teeth that is constant and disruptive
- Gums that are sore or that have a generally uncomfortable feeling
- Tooth sensitivity to cold and hot food and drinks
