IS CERVICAL TOOTH ABRASION REVERSIBLE?

By: Smileway Dental

Cervical tooth abrasion can be noticeable as the gums slightly recedes causing the neck of the tooth to expose. The causes of this problem are multifactorial as it may be affected by the method of tooth brushing, the usage of abrasive toothpaste and biting or chewing on hard objects which results in enameland cementum wear off.

Gradual loss of enamel coating can cause sensitivity that may further lead to increasing risk of dental decay. Many of us might think that cervical abrasion is irreversible but it actually can be treated by improving the way we brush our teeth. Practicing proper method of brushing using soft bristle toothbrush can help to cope with this matter. Other than that,you also need to be more careful in choosing toothpaste as it might contain abrasive material. If you not sure, you can refer to the dentist as they might recommend the proper toothpaste to solve your problem. Moreover, biting habit also can lead to this matter as for example nail biting as if this cannot be controlled it may worsen the condition. 

If cervical tooth abrasion remains untreated, there will be increased chance of having plaque trapping which may cause periodontal disease. So, to overcome this dental problem there are some solution that you might considered to go to the dentist for immediate treatment by using Glass Ionomer Cement (GIC) and Composite Resin Restoration.

Got a bridge and implant done by Dr Jon this year. Still holding up, looking forward to next and hopefully final treatment for missing tooth. Flexible payment terms and polite staff. Give them a try if you haven’t.

Surveyed few dentists before I decided to do my wisdom tooth surgery here. Very good service by Dr Edwin who was very gentle throughout the procedure. Most importantly, it was painless. Had good experience with the follow-up sessions too and hope to receive the same experience in my next visit. The nurses and receptionists are very welcoming and friendly. Thumbs up for the good service and the will definitely come again.
