Therefore, dental abrasion treatment and tooth abrasion treatment are very important to ensure that your teeth stay healthy and strong and last you a lifetime.

Common symptoms include increased temperature sensitivity to cold and heat. Your teeth  may seem to sting when eating cold foods such as ice cream. If allowed to progress, abrasion can lead to the erosion of tooth enamel.

  • Brush with a circular, not back and forward, motion.
  • Brush gently. Plaque is soft and is easily removed, so there is no need for you to use excessive
  • Remember to brush, not scrub!
  • Do not start from the same tooth every time you brush your teeth. This is when toothpaste is most concentrated and aggressive.
  • Reducing the frequency of drinking carbonated drinks and fruit juices with high levels of acidity is the key to preventing erosion of the teeth.
