Causes of AbrasionThe reason may be one or a combination of following factors. Normally in clinical practice, I see a combination of several factors.
- Excessive tooth brushing for a longer period
- Use of hard tooth brush
- Use of tooth paste containing highly abrasive material
- Use of locally prepared tooth cleaning powder or paste like Gul, Gulak or Lal Manjan (red tooth powder)
- Repeatedly putting foreign objects in the mouth like pipe smoking, pen, bobby pins or any other occupational material
