What Are Dental Abrasions?

A dental abrasion is an irregular wearing down of the tooth's surface. The abrasion usually presents itself as a v-shaped nick on the bottom of your tooth. There are many habits and elements that can lead to dental abrasions, such as:

  • Brushing teeth with unnecessary force.
  • Ill-fitting dental clasps on your dentures.
  • Regularly using a hard-bristle toothbrush.
  • Habitually eating or drinking foods and beverages with a high acid content.
  • Oral piercings that scrape your teeth.


Dental abrasions can lead to serious oral complications, such as nerve exposure and tissue damage. Abrasions can also have a negative impact on the look of your smile and your confidence. Some of the symptoms of dental abrasions include:

  • Small v-shaped indents appearing on the bottom of your tooth, near your gum line.
  • Abnormal tooth sensitivity to the heat or cold.
  • Pain in your tooth.
  • Sensitive or aching gums.
