Basic diagnosis: dental erosion first
A key step prior to worn down dentition repairing is a thorough root cause diagnosis. Would you like to be able to explain to patients how the restorations will age?
Well, diagnosis comes first: 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
