For many people, worn teeth can present itself for a variety of reasons. In fact, teeth wear is a very common issue that may occur simply from aging or other reasons like teeth grinding (also known as bruxism), consuming foods and beverages high in acid, a misaligned bite, and even issues like acid reflux or bulimia.
Worn teeth can lead to misshapen teeth and even jaw pain or TMJ. However, it’s important to know that there are treatments to remedy worn teeth and the root cause, and Dr. Milan can help.
Treatment of worn teeth
How are you to know if your teeth are wearing? Here are some common telltale signs:
- Teeth are jagged
- Teeth display chips or cracks
- Teeth have become shorter
- Sensitivity is present (particularly when consuming cold or hot food)
- Worn enamel causes teeth to appear yellow
- Changes in your bite
- Filling or crown issues
Worn teeth can put you at risk of tooth decay as well as cause an uneven bite or even changes to your facial appearance in some cases. If you are experiencing worn teeth, the first step is to see a dentist who specializes in dentistry and cosmetic dentistry who can properly assess and diagnose the cause and offer effective treatment options.
Sometimes, simply changing your diet could help put an end to the issue. However, other cases require more in-depth treatment. For example, if the enamel of your teeth is severely damaged, you may require some extent of mouth rehabilitation to rebuild your teeth. Veneers or crowns can be effective solutions. Dr. Milan can also configure a mouthguard that is custom-made for you and that can help prevent nighttime grinding of the teeth. These solutions can restore your comfort, as well as the functionality and appearance of your teeth.
