Tooth Grille Damage - Milwaukee WITooth jewelery, precious metal grilles and various piercing treatments within the oral cavity area are quite popular with certain patient groups.
As with any treatments that involve adding elements of change that have the potential of interacting with soft tissues, hard tissues and overall occlusion... unwelcomed events sometimes do occur.
This young male patient paid $700 to a jeweler who made a precious metal, gold, grille that was cast from impression molds provided by the jeweler.
Unfortunately, a dentist was not involved nor consulted.
The gold metal adds a precise thickness of product that provides a veneer - like effect upon each tooth. This thickness of metal added to the biting edges of all 8 anterior teeth, however, changes the occlusal properties of the patient's bite quite substantially.
Simply stated, you can't add to some teeth and not others and have a normal bite. The teeth that hit first (the gold teeth) applies force factors on the teeth like a class 1 lever. This causes occlusal traumatism, widening of the periodontal ligament, pain, sensitivity or fracture.
Because of the patient being young, the cosmetic dentistry will probably have to be repeated a few times during his lifetime due to normal wear and tear... increasing the total cost even more.
