ABC Tooth Contact
In dentistry, faulty contacts are imperfections in the contact between adjacent teeth. Teeth do not just make contact with each other; there are specific points of contact, these are known as the ABC contacts. Misalignment of these contacts can lead to toothache, tooth decay, periodontal damage, tooth migration and even facial pain. Please note that having no contact between teeth isn't good either, tooth shifting might be the result. The best way to verify is by biting on a thin sheet of paper. Any conscientious dentist will test the positioning of your dental prosthetic using a special type of color foil. Watch this video to find out more about dental contact points.
