Study Notes

Tooth Wear

  • Tooth wear is described as the loss of dental hard tissues from the surfaces of the teeth caused by factors other than dental caries, trauma, and developmental disorders.
  • Physiological wear is considered an age-related normal process.

Hard Tooth Tissue Defects

  • Abfraction is not a hard tooth tissue defect mentioned in the text.

Challenges in Dentistry

  • Tooth wear presents one of the greatest challenges in dentistry.

Tooth Lesions

  • Abrasion lesions are not associated with the presence of microorganisms that cause defects in tooth structures.

Treatment Planning

  • The term "programmed treatment planning" describes the treatment planning process for severe wear if the rules are precisely adhered to in correct sequence.

Attrition

  • Attrition is the mechanical wear of tooth structure due to tooth-to-tooth contact without any foreign substance intervention.
  • Attrition may be regarded as pathological if the rate of wear is greater than expected or atypical for the patient's age.
  • Pathological causal factors for attrition include bruxism and parafunctional habits.
  • The clinical appearance associated with attrition is a flat or shiny wear facet.

Vertical Dimension Loss

  • The term "vertical dimension loss" is used to describe tooth wear associated with the loss of vertical dimensions of teeth.

Tooth Wear Types

  • Abrasion is a type of tooth wear that involves the wear of tooth structure due to mechanical factors other than mastication.
  • Erosion is a type of tooth wear characterized by the loss of tooth structure due to chemical processes without bacterial involvement.
  • Attrition is a type of tooth wear that involves the mechanical wear of tooth structure due to tooth-to-tooth contact.
  • Abfraction is a type of tooth wear associated with the loss of tooth structure due to flexure and fatigue caused by occlusal forces.

Abrasion

  • The term "abrasion" is used to describe the loss of tooth structure by mechanical forces during tooth brushing or other abrasive actions.

Tooth Movement

  • The term " migrations" is used to describe the flattening of proximal surfaces and widening of proximal contact areas due to physiologic tooth movement.

Test your knowledge of managing non-carious lesions, including tooth wear from abrasion, attrition, erosion, abfraction, and other hard tooth tissue defects. Explore the various ways tooth wear and non-carious lesions can occur, and how they can be effectively managed.
