Clinical Strategies to Prevent and Manage Dental Erosion
Erosive tooth wear, for the majority of individuals, is a totally preventable condition. Contemporary figures show the prevalence of tooth wear is increasing and common in both deciduous and adult dentitions.The impact of moderate to severe tooth wear can be significant leading to poor aesthetics, sensitivity, loss of function, gingival recessionand sometimes loss of self-esteem. Due to the gradual and often sporadic nature of tooth wear, it can be difficult to diagnose and assessments to predict susceptibility are not currently available.Once advanced, lesions are clearly visible to the patient, however at thislate stage restorative intervention may be necessary accompanied with life long dental treatment. Hence the need to be more proactive at prevention of erosive tooth wear, as individuals, professionals and regulatory bodies. Overall management of erosive tooth wear should start with screening all patients on a regular basis. Early diagnosis of erosion is optimal and key so that preventive measures can be implemented. Some oral health care products,for example toothpastes or mouthrinses, have the potential for slowing the progression of erosive tooth wear, and are straightforward and effective to administer.However, tooth brushing should not be performed immediately after acid exposure, when the surface is softened. Restorative materials and bonding systems are only used if absolutely necessary and referral to a specialist or a general practitioner is generally advised at this stage.
