Dental attrition is the deterioration that occurs over time due to tooth-on-tooth contact. Most dental attrition occurs slowly as a result of day-to-day activities, so a certain level of wear and tear is expected as we age. However, when dental attrition becomes excessive, the enamel of your teeth wears away to reveal the more sensitive tooth structure below. This can cause severe oral pain, inhibit regular oral function and damage the appearance of your smile.
Our prosthodontists and team offer several treatments to help you halt and overcome the effects of dental attrition. Some of the treatments we may recommend include:
- Dental bonding
- Dental veneers
- Dental crowns
- Other cosmetic or restorative treatments designed to lengthen and strengthen your tooth crowns
Our prosthodontists may also recommend that you be fitted for a custom night guard if you suffer from bruxism (habitual teeth grinding and clenching) in order to protect your teeth and prevent further attrition from occurring.
We welcome you to contact our office today to learn more about our treatments for dental attrition and schedule a consultation with our experienced prosthodontists. We are dedicated to restoring your smile so that you can enjoy a healthy smile for life.
