I'm 58,been a bruxer and nail-biter since childhood,now have worn down at least the bottom 4 front middle teeth so far that I've exposed the dentin and they're sensitive all the time,even to just breathing,sometimes.I'm wondering what the solution or procedure I need is. Thanks so much.

  • If the teeth are sensitive and wearing of teeth is there then you can get the crowns on that if the teeth are not infected.This will stop the further wearing of teeth. If the teeth are infected or very near to the pulp then after getting Root Canal treatment for these teeth you can have crowns. For bruxism you can wear a night guard so that further damage to teeth is stopped. For more info on bruxism you can read this article... http://www.identalhub.com/article_signs-symptoms-and-effects-of-bruxism-11.aspx
