Worn Dentition
 
Your dentist at the Dental and Implantology Unit will diagnose and asses the severity of tooth wear before planning any procedures.
 
In cases of localised wear, simple restorative materials, such as white fillings, may be used to restore the wear if there is space available. For generalised tooth wear, your dentists will categorise the amount of wear that might have taken place and advise you on the options available to you. These may be simple and purely preventative, such as the fabrication of a soft protective splint to be worn at night. In severe cases, it may be necessary to restore all the teeth using a combination of inlays, crowns and veneers.
 
Tooth wear is a very common problem caused by loss of tooth structure through attrition. It can be made worse by exposing the teeth to excessive quantities of acidic drinks such as soft drinks and fruit juices.
