When teeth are subjected to too much pressure on a regular basis, the problem of worn teeth can occur. When the tooth enamel is worn away, the more sensitive part underneath may be exposed, and there is a higher risk of developing dental problems such as tooth decay; this is the reason why teeth that are just starting to get worn away should be diagnosed properly, to be able to prevent additional dental problems from developing.
A number of reasons can contribute to the problem of worn teeth; these reasons include: tooth erosion (due to the consumption of food and drinks high in acidity), a too-hard tooth brushing technique, habitual biting on hard surfaces, and teeth grinding or teeth clenching (bruxism). Avoiding food and beverages high in acidity can prevent tooth erosion; mouth guards, on the other hand, can prevent teeth grinding from wearing away the tooth enamel. Proper tooth brushing techniques, and a conscious effort to avoid unhealthy habits (such as habitually biting on a pen or a pencil), can go a long way as well in preventing the problem of teeth that are worn away.
Worn teeth can be prevented in a number of ways – it is best to consult your dentist about this, so you have the proper and professional guidance to be able to combat teeth that are prematurely worn away. Protecting your tooth enamel, and avoiding the occurrence of worn teeth, can make sure that you enjoy bright smiles and an overall good dental health for a longer period of time.
