What are Grills?

Updated: Dec 17, 2018


Grills refer to decorative covers that are designed to snap over a single tooth or many teeth. In most instances, grills are removable.


Key takeaways:

  • Grills made from non-precious metal may cause irritation and allergy.

  • People who wear grills should observe good oral healthcare since food particles may stick between teeth and the grills.

  • To prevent dental problems, you should limit the frequency and duration of wearing your grills.

Food and other debris may become trapped between the teeth and the grill allowing bacteria to collect and produce acids. The acids can cause tooth decay and harm gum tissue.
