Tooth Abscess
Tooth abrasion is not caused by one method alone but by numerous different activities. The main cause however can be due to brushing your teeth incorrectly. Brushing your teeth to hard, to fast or even using the wrong toothpaste can lead to serious tooth abrasion. Other causes of tooth abrasion include grinding your teeth, using your teeth as a cutting tool and chewing on hard objects. Chemicals such as acids cause tooth erosion. Usually the acids are in citrus fruits and other foods.

This can affect all types of people although the risk of tooth abrasion is highly affected among the people who suffer with gum disease. Tooth abrasion can occur gradually over a period of time or very quickly. Gradual tooth abrasion allows the body to reduce the severity of tooth abrasion as the body has sufficient time to repair itself. Quick tooth abrasion on the other hand can cause irreversible damage to the pulp and lead to the consequences of tooth abrasion, which not only include crocked teeth but also increased tooth sensitivity, infection and ultimately loss of the tooth.
