Grills and Oral Health

Posted on 4/10/2023 by Dr. Frank K. Sioda
Grills and Oral HealthGrills are commonly used to cover one or more teeth. They are also referred to as "Grillz" or "fronts." Gold, silver, and even diamond-encrusted pieces are available options.

Some people have gone so far as to have gold crowns fabricated to transform their teeth into a grill permanently, but most grills are removable. However, studies on the long-term viability of grills in the mouth are scarce.

The Effects of Grills on Our Mouths

No conclusive evidence exists that grills are harmful, even though some are made from non-precious metals that may cause irritation or metal allergies. However, if you opt to wear a grill, you should exercise extra caution and care for your oral health.

Cavities, gum disease, and bad breath can all result from food getting stuck between the teeth and the grill. There is also the risk of enamel erosion due to the grill's constant pressure on opposite teeth.


Limit the time you spend in removable grills and always take them out before eating to avoid complications. Grills should be cleaned daily to remove bacteria and food debris, and harmful cleaning products should be avoided.

Get your dentist's opinion on the materials and any risks before committing to a dental grill. Even though grills are trendy today, putting your teeth' health first is more important than ever. White, healthy teeth are always in style.
