My teeth look worn & shorter than they did when I was young. What’s happening?
Short, worn down teeth are the result of a misalignment of the teeth when the jaws come together. They can also be the result of clenching and grinding, which usually occurs at night. In addition, premature loss of permanent teeth can increase the demand on the remaining teeth, resulting in worn, broken teeth.
If grinding and clenching are the culprits behind your worn teeth, we can help by providing you with a customized occlusal guard to hold your jaws apart while you are sleeping to prevent further wear and tear.
