Abrasion Tooth

By: Smileway Dental

Abrasion Tooth

What is abrasion?

Abrasion is the abnormal wear of a tooth. It is usually caused by a toothpaste that is too abrasive or gritty or by aggressive brushing with a hard bristled brush.

What the Symptoms?

Common symptoms include increased sensitivity to heat. For example, your gums may burn when drinking hot drinks. Some people also report an increased sensitivity to cold. Your teeth may seem to sting when eating cold foods such as ice cream.

If allowed to progress, abrasion can lead to the erosion of tooth enamel.

How to prevent?

  • You should use the least abrasive toothpaste possible, i.e. toothpaste for sensitive teeth.
  • You should use a soft toothbrush. Brush with a circular, not back and forward, motion.
  • Brush gently. Plaque is soft and is easily removed, so there’s no need for you to use excessive pressure. Remember to “brush,” not scrub!
  • Do not start from the same tooth every time. This is when toothpaste is most concentrated and aggressive.
  • Reducing the frequency of drinking carbonated drinks and fruit juices with high levels of acidity is the key to preventing erosion of the teeth.

These are some of the steps you can take to have a stronger and healthier tooth. After all, we all want to make sure we are problem free and we can enjoy our life and food for many years. In Smileway Dental Clinic USJ and Smileway Dental Clinic Setapak we take care of your smile because we believe in “Creating Smiles That Matters” in your life. Take care everyone.

I can say from my own experience as a doctor, they are good. Appointments are kinda hard to get. Do you know why? You get what you want and what you need. Most likely you’ll leave the clinic with a smile on your face.

Definitely my best dental experience with Dr.Jon Low whose by far is one of the most attentive and gentle dental doctor. His approach to dental care is immaculate and he pays the most attention to the finest detail.
