Worn or Thinning Teeth
There are many reasons for our teeth to erode or thin. Some of these include our diet of highly acidic drinks and foods. many of us don’t know that some salad dressings, fruit juices and the ever popular energy drinks can be highly acidic and very damaging to our teeth. Stress also can cause our teeth to become “worn away” by the acidic erosion of heartburn reflex (GERD) or grinding or clenching. we can fabricate an appliance called a nigh guard that can help with the clenching and grinding and will help alleviate some symptoms such as jaw pain and head aches.
The good news is that with modern materials, techniques and dedication we can restore and in some cases resolve these problems and the patients can return to normal appearance and function.
