Dental abrasion is a lesion found in teeth edging, frequently appearing at the cervical level (the tooth – gum limit). The abrasion’s evolution is more present at the tooth’s surface rather than at a deeper level.
Dental abrasion occurs after repeated contact with a foreign body.
Determining factors include:
- The force applied to the tooth brush while brushing;
- The hardness, shape and length of the toothbrush;
- The PH
- The amount of toothpaste used.
- Relieving hypersensitivity and pain;
- Identifying the determining factors and eliminating them;
- Protecting the remaining tooth structure;
- Keeping the patient under supervision.
