Wear from Bruxism (Grinding)

Procedure Details

When the teeth are being clenched or ground together, wear and a loss of tooth structure can result along the gum line. When this area is worn cavities will develop. Very little reduction is needed to remove the cavities. A resin like material is added and polished to help protect and restore the area.

Cavities Along The Gum Line

These cavities develop overtime due to clenching and grinding.  When the gum receeds, there is an exposure of the root surface that begins to wear and decay.  These lesions can be quite sensitive and if not caught early, they cab be extensive.  After restoration a bruxism guard is normally recommended to help reduce the trauma that can cause these problems.
