Tooth Wear Management



If you experience pain or headaches as a result of tooth grinding, you could benefit from a range of solutions provided by Pearl Dental Clinic.


Tooth wear

Tooth wear is the loss of a tooth surface that has not been caused by common dental issues, such as decay or trauma. This issue can have a negative impact on the protective layer of enamel, dentine, or pulp found on each tooth. In turn, wear of the chewing surfaces of the teeth can occur. This is referred to as attrition and is caused by bruxism. The result of this can be flat or broken teeth that become extremely painful and sensitive.

Tooth Grinding & Tooth Wear

Before treatment for the issue can begin, it is important to establish the type of teeth grinding that is occurring. As well as identifying where in the mouth it is taking place. This will allow for the ideal treatment method and the most effective solution. It is also very important to establish a prevention regime to prevent further damage to the dentition.

The majority of people may be unaware that they grind their teeth when they are asleep. However, a dull and constant headache or sore jaw are symptoms of bruxism and should be treated immediately to ensure the problem does not become worse.

Temporomandibular joint

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) headaches are a common sign of teeth grinding and are usually treatable with the replacement of missing teeth, the adoption of relaxation techniques, wearing an anti-grinding appliance, or using prescribed medication.

In some cases, bruxism can result in the loosening, fracturing, or loss of teeth, while in other severe cases it could cause teeth to become like worn down tooth stumps. This could result in the requirement for bridges, crowns, dental implants, or root canal treatments.

At Pearl Dental Clinic we are able to investigate this issue and provide the correct treatment for your needs. This could include a soft night guard, Michigan splint or a NTI-tss device. Furthermore, we can restore teeth that have suffered damage using composite white fillings or crowns.

It may also be necessary for some individuals to change the technique they use to brush their teeth, with some tooth wear caused by the use of an incorrect brush. We can also cover any exposed tooth surface using a composite resin filling, which is effective in reducing the tooth sensitivity.book dental appointment
