“Tooth Wear” or “Tooth Surface Loss” is a general term used to denote the surface loss of tooth enamel and dentine as a result of :

  • Physiological use – mastication – eating and chewing
  • Pathological causes – Attrition (Bruxism – Clenching and Grinding), Abrasion, Acid Erosion, Abfraction
  • Congenital tooth developmental disorders – such as Amelogenesis / Dentinogenesis Imperfecta

 Consequences of Tooth Wear

  • Tooth Sensitivity and Nerve Pulp Death in Severe Cases
  • Reduced Tooth Size and Contour with Tooth Loss in Severe Cases
  • Impaired Function – Mastication (eating and chewing) and Speech
  • Compromised Aesthetic or Cosmetic Smile Appearance

Before extensive dental rehabilitation, our clinicians at Perth Prosthodontics must first diagnose the underlying cause of worn dentition, all the aesthetic / cosmetic concerns, functional (eating, chewing, speech) needs and assess gum and bone health.

Our clinicians at Perth Prosthodontics have undertaken formal advanced postgraduate training and have an in-depth understanding on the art, science and theory behind complex dental rehabilitation required for the management of worn dentition.
