A dental abrasion occurs when your tooth’s surface has suffered an abnormal amount of wearing down. It typically shows up as a v-shaped nick present on the bottom of your tooth. A dental abrasion can be caused by many harmful factors and habits, including:
- Brushing your teeth with too much force
- Regularly consuming food and beverages with a high acid content
- Piercings in the mouth that hit against teeth
- Utilizing a toothbrush with hard bristles
- Clasps on your dentures that are ill-fitting
