Wear and Tear of the Enamel of the Teeth

enamel of the teeth in bangalore

Poor bite, clenching or grinding can cause eroded or notched areas (erosions) on teeth close to the gum line. It is felt like a line that is present all the way around the tooth below the surface of the gum line. This is also seen in patients with TMD as they often have a poor bite and also clench or grind their teeth during sleep

The hardest substance in our body is enamel. As a forensic proof dental enamel would remain for thousands of years. Then why should it wear away during our lifetime. Clenching or bruxism causes this. This would also lead to sensitivity to hot or cold or sweet or sour food.
