Dental Abrasion Downey, CA
A dental abrasion is damage that occurs to the enamel by forces that are applied to the teeth. It is not caused by tooth-on-tooth contact. Rather, it’s caused by external forces, such as brushing too hard, chewing on your nails, or using a hard-bristled toothbrush. Over time, these actions can start to wear down the enamel and put you at risk for serious dental issues. Thankfully, your Downey dentist can treat dental abrasions.
