Dental Photographs- 2.Severe Abrasion of Teeth

Severe Abrasion of Teeth

This is the dental picture to show marked abrasion of the whole dentition in a 50-plus man. Such cases are commonly found in India. Prominent causes of this condition is tooth-brushing by wrong technique, using a worn-out tooth brush, use of abrasive, locally prepared tooth powders — combination of all this leads to situation like this.

It is not that these teeth can’t be repaired. Most of these can be easily repaired using suitable, tooth-coloured fillings etc.

This patient also had a painful tooth due to this excessive wear of tooth structure which exposed the nerve of the tooth and tooth became shaky for which he got Root canal treatment from a city dentist which is not successful and hence he came to me.
