Dental Erosion: Etiology, Diagnosis and Prevention

Dental erosion is a prevalent condition that occurs worldwide. It is the
result of exposure of the enamel and dentin to nonbacterial acids of
extrinsic and intrinsic origin, whereby mineral loss occurs from the
surface of the tooth. The most frequently affected areas are the palatal
surface of maxillary incisors and the occlusal surface of the mandibular
first molars in adolescents. Characteristic early signs of dental erosion
include smooth and flat facets on facial or palatal surfaces, and shallow
and localized dimpling on occlusal surfaces. Early intervention is key to
effectively preventing erosive tooth wear. Effective prevention of dental
erosion includes measures that can avoid or reduce direct contact with
acids, increase acid resistance of dental hard tissues and minimize
toothbrushing abrasion.
