An epidemiological scoring system for tooth wear and dental erosive wear
Background: The prevalence and severity of tooth wear and dental erosion is rising in children and there is no consensus about an index to be employed. Aim: To assess the reliability of an epidemiological scoring system ...
Scanning electron microscopic study of the in situ effect of salivary stimulation on erosion and abrasion in human and bovine enamel
This in situ study investigated, using scanning electron microscopy, the effect of stimulated saliva on the enamel surface of bovine and human substrates submitted to erosion followed by brushing abrasion immediately or ...
In vitro evaluation of the microhardness of bovine enamel exposed to acid solutions after bleaching
(Sociedade Brasileira de Pesquisa Odontológica (SBPqO), 2011-11-01)
Acid erosion is a superficial loss of enamel caused by chemical processes that do not involve bacteria. Intrinsic and extrinsic factors, such as the presence of acid substances in the oral cavity, may cause a pH reduction, ...
Protective effect of green tea on dentin erosion and abrasion
(Faculdade De Odontologia De Bauru - USP, 2009)
OBJECTIVE: This in situ study evaluated the protective effect of green tea on dentin erosion (ERO) and erosion-abrasion (ABR). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Ten volunteers wore intraoral palatal appliances with bovine dentin ...
Prevalence of deciduous tooth erosion in childhood
Objectives: The objective of this study was to estimate the prevalence of deciduous tooth erosion and to identify possible associations with sex, age and toothbrushing frequency in children aged 4-6 years. Methods: The ...
Control of erosive tooth wear: possibilities and rationale
(Sociedade Brasileira de Pesquisa Odontológica, 2009)
Dental erosion is a type of wear caused by non bacterial acids or chelation. There is evidence of a significant increase in the prevalence of dental wear in the deciduous and permanent teeth as a consequence of the frequent ...
