Right canine tooth wearing down becoming sharp and losing fullness. Got front tooth bonding for chip. What can I do to preserve canine tooth. Chewing?
2 additional points: My colleagues already gave you some very thorough and excellent answers. Without actually being able to clinically examine you, we can only give you some general advice. Some patients clench and grind their teeth even when awake, and we cannot always add bonded fillings that won't constantly break off. Two other options are a crown or having to live with some wear facets on your teeth. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If i had to recommend it being extracted, i would point out to the patient that I have no choice but to do it because something is seriously wrong with that molar and then explain why i felt that way. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If front 2 teeth used to be longer in front and bottom teeth rest behind them. Would dent grind 2 teeth bc of small chip and bonded 1 tooth unlock tmj?
Maybe: There is more and more research in the last 10 years indicating the bite has little to do with the tmj. If your TMJ is locked changing your bite will not help and by locked i assume you mean you can't get your mouth open. To unlock a bite, the jaw may need manipulation with possible anesthesia either in the joint or systemically. I would suggest seeing aa dentist who can diagnose the problem. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Maybe: Usually the root is exposed from the back part of teeth in front of the wisdom tooth removed creating a condition where these teeth will be symptomatic, particularly to cold or other stimulus.

Bite effects jaws: If jaw soreness occurred after the bonding procedure, than a slight excess of material on the back of the upper front teeth or top of the lower front teeth can cause a premature contact that can alter the muscle pattern of lower jaw closure, and create the symptoms you describe. Ask your dentist to re-evaluate the occlusal contacts of your front teeth for heavy contacts. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
