1/42. Abrasion, erosion, and abfraction combined with linear enamel hypoplasia: a case report.

    Linear enamel hypoplasia is a developmental disturbance of enamel resulting in clinically visible horizontal defects in enamel that are present on eruption of the tooth. Nondevelopmental lesions of the hard tissues of the tooth, including carious, abrasion, erosion, attrition, and abfraction lesions, require varying amounts of time after tooth eruption to develop. Because linear enamel hypoplasia lesions are present on eruption and are exposed to the factors responsible for abrasion, erosion, and abfraction, nondevelopmental lesions could occur within them in any combination. This report describes a patient with multiple teeth with linear enamel hypoplasia lesions containing nondevelopmental defects as well as nondevelopmental defects that occurred separately. Severe pain and a unique lesion morphology were associated with the linear enamel hypoplasia defects. Affected teeth were extracted because of advanced periodontitis and were sectioned to determine the nature of the enamel and dentin lesions.

2/42. Dental erosion and aspirin headache powders: a clinical report.

    The causes of tooth erosion are varied, but all are associated with a chemical attack on the teeth and resulting loss of tooth structure. Etiologic factors related to erosion cited in the literature include bulimia, eating acidic foods, soft drink consumption, acid reflux, and swimming, among others. This clinical report suggests that chronic use of headache powders can also be a factor leading to tooth erosion.

3/42. Restoration of extensive erosion areas using an indirect composite technique.

    Cervical erosion defects, particularly those of extensive size that are located in an area where control of the operative field is difficult, can present a significant restorative challenge. This article describes an indirect restorative technique to solve this problem. Following tooth preparation, an indirect restoration is luted to the tooth and the margins are finished and polished. Using an indirect technique minimizes operative field isolation time and the total chairside time required to restore the tooth. Clinical cases are presented to illustrate this technique.

4/42. Dental erosion: diagnostic-based noninvasive treatment.

    Lesions that result from dental erosion can be difficult to recognize--particularly when abrasion and attrition are also present. Consequently, dental erosion is often misdiagnosed and mistreated by radical restorative modalities that compromise the vitality of the pulp. This article provides clinicians with knowledge concerning the diagnosis of the complex lesions of dental wear and demonstrates the conservative treatment of this condition. Two cases that exhibit marked tooth wear in anterior teeth and their subsequent restoration utilizing occlusal principles and composite resin are presented.

5/42. Syndromes with salivary dysfunction predispose to tooth wear: case reports of congenital dysfunction of major salivary glands, Prader-Willi, congenital rubella, and Sjogren's syndromes.

    Four cases-of congenital dysfunction of the major salivary glands as well as of Prader-Willi, congenital rubella, and Sjogren's syndromes-were identified in a series of 500 patients referred for excessive tooth wear. Although there was evidence of consumption of highly acidic drinks, some occlusal parafunction, and unacceptable toothbrushing habits, salivary dysfunction was the salient factor predisposing a patient to tooth wear in these syndromal cases. The 500 subjects have been characterized either as having medical conditions and medications that predispose them to xerostomia or lifestyles in which workplace- and sports-related dehydration lead to reduced salivary flow. Normal salivation, by buffering capacity, clearance by swallowing, pellicle formation, and capacity for remineralization of demineralized enamel, protects the teeth from extrinsic and intrinsic acids that initiate dental erosion. Thus, the syndromes, unrelated in many respects, underline the importance of normal salivation in the protection of teeth against tooth wear by erosion, attrition, and abrasion.

6/42. A question of space: options for the restorative management of worn teeth.

    The prevalence of tooth surface loss has increased in recent years. The essence of management is an effective preventive regime; however, in many instances restoration may also be necessary. A number of strategies is available for creating sufficient space to enable restoration and several techniques for restoration known. This article reviews the significance of the vertical dimension of occlusion and describes the restorative management of a patient affected by severe tooth wear.

7/42. Restorative management of the worn dentition: 3. Localized posterior toothwear.

    In the management of localized posterior occlusal toothwear, care must be taken not only in determining whether the worn teeth are restorable, but also the desirable occlusal scheme. Assessments of the periodontal, endodontic, and coronal tooth tissues, and the occlusal relationship are necessary for a comprehensive treatment plan for worn posterior teeth.

8/42. Diagnosis and dental treatment of a young adult patient with gastroesophageal reflux: a case report with 2-year follow-up.

    A young adult who complained of extreme dentin sensitivity to tactile and thermal stimuli exhibited severe, generalized tooth erosion and an associated parafunctional habit. The diagnosis of the underlying general disease and treatment of its dental sequelae are presented, together with a 2-year follow up. patients who are suspected of having gastroesophageal reflux should be referred to a gastroenterologist or other health professionals to ensure early diagnosis and treatment of the underlying disorder, thus minimizing the destruction of the patient's dentition and improving the patient's general health. Dental treatment should be adjusted to fit the characteristics of each case.

9/42. rehabilitation of severely eroded dentition utilizing all-ceramic restorations.

    tooth wear is becoming an increasing concern, particularly in younger patients. Clinicians will increasingly encounter such problems as more natural teeth are retained into older age and patients' aesthetic demands and expectations rise. The use of all-ceramic restorations has increased due to the materials' natural appearance and strength. This, together with the new generation of resin cements, allows the provision of predictable single-unit restorations. This article reviews the etiology of erosion, which currently appears to be a primary contributor to tooth wear. Aesthetic treatment of a patient is also presented using all-ceramic restorations.

10/42. Dental management of a child with anorexia nervosa who presents with severe tooth erosion.

    Carbonated soft drinks can, when consumed regularly and in large quantities, cause severe dental erosion. In patients with anorexia nervosa the temptation to substitute these drinks for their regular diet has increased, since they are readily available, relatively cheap and their consumption is socially acceptable. The dental management of a young child suspected of having anorexia, who presented with severe dental erosion, is described.
