Abrasion is the progressive mechanical wear of teeth caused by foreign external objects.
It can cause tooth wear, ranging from V shaped notches at the gum line to the destruction of the biting surfaces of the teeth.
Here are some commonly asked questions about this condition:
Where does Abrasion occur on my teeth?
Abrasion most commonly occurs as a shiny V shaped groove at the gum line of the teeth contributing to a notching appearance.
Abrasion associated with a destructive diet will cause a flattening appearance of the chewing surfaces of the back teeth.
