Basic diagnosis: dental erosion
In case of the worn down dentitions, a diagnosis of the origin of the tooth wear should be made. Erosion should be ruled out, since it is the easier type of wear to treat, and only by understanding the reason behind the original tooth wear we can predict the longevity of its repair. For example, if the cause of erosion is acid, then the restorations will age better than the natural teeth.
This lecture will help you to:
- Learn how to identify the signs of dental erosion
- Identify the causes of the erosive wear
- Make a differential diagnosis between erosion and dysfunction
