What causes tooth wear?
Some level of tooth erosion occurs naturally with age, but it can be made worse when the teeth are exposed to acids. This may be more common than you realise.
Citrus fruits, vinegar, fizzy drinks, fruit juice, wine and many other foods and drinks contain acids that get left behind on your teeth. Teeth can also be exposed to acids through vomiting or reflux (heartburn and indigestion).
Tooth can also be worn down if you brush too hard and scrape away the enamel, or if you grind or clench your teeth.
The dentists in Everton Park and Mitchelton will try to find the root cause of your tooth wear so we can recommend suitable treatment and prevention. We can also help you to restore worn teeth necks.
