Worn enamel is simply not normal.
On average, a human with a normal occlusion (bite) should have less than 1mm of wear in 90 years of life.
So patients with 2-3 mm of wear by the age of 40 are pretty much suffering from over 270 years worth of wear!
If you have chipping, sensitive teeth, worn enamel, or blue edges of shortened looking teeth, you probably have tooth wear, which may be excessive for your age.
Many things can help – such as correcting your bite.
Stay tuned for a new video with Dr. Vane about tooth wear.
