Treatment for Worn & Fractured Teeth

Treatment for Worn & Fractured Teeth

Tooth wear with age is a normal physiological process.

However, when superimposed by excessive attrition (grinding) and erosion (acid dissolution), signs and symptoms such as tooth sensitivity, pulpal sensitivity, repeated tooth and filling (restoration) fractures, reduced tooth height and facial height collapse may present depending on the severity of the problem.

Most tooth wear cases tend to be highly complex due to the multiple number of teeth that are compromised in function and aesthetics, therefore the clinical and technical expertise of the prosthodontist should be consulted.

As part of the consultation process, it is crucial to identify the multifactorial cause behind tooth wear and fracture, such that a strategic approach can be taken to control and/or eliminate these factors.

Together with simple (fillings) to complex restorations (veneers, inlays & onlays, crown & bridgework), this will help to improve the long term stability of treatment results.
