Worn Teeth

The causes and Consequences of worn Teeth

Causes of Tooth Wear
As you might expect, the process of chewing where the teeth literally grind together will mean that over time the surfaces of the opposing teeth will wear away. This is of course a quite normal part of the aging process. However our diet and habits can exacerbate normal wear. Highly acidic food and drink (including both fizzy drinks and fruit juices) can cause additional erosion.

 

Those with the habit of clenching and grinding their teeth even when not eating can of course hasten the process.

 

Tooth wear is not only a consequence of aging it also adds to our outward appearance of growing old. As tooth height is lost the dimensions of the face change.

 

The lower third of the face tends to collapse relative to the remainder. This causes the skin and muscle to sag and so the jowls are exaggerated; lines and wrinkles appear.

 

The joint between the lower jaw and the skull (TMJ) can also become distorted and you may experience a 'clicking' sensation. This may sometimes be accompanied by any or some of the following:

  • Difficulty biting or chewing
  • Dull, aching pain in the face
  • Earache
  • Headache
  • Migraine
  • Neck and shoulder pain

Dental Facelift
The dental facelift procedure we offer is an effective remedy to these problems. It aims to restore the original tooth dimensions and thereby put the face back in balance. The result is that the facial aging factors we have mentioned as well as the associated joint problems will be cured.

 

In all probability this procedure will involve fitting a complete new set of crown, both top and bottom. This is likely to cost at least 5500 GBP / 6000 Euros / 8700 USD. However it is quite likely that other work will be needed and so you should expect to pay more than this.
