ABSTRACT

In recent decades, dental erosion has received a considerable amount of attention with a steady increase of the prevalence. However, the awareness of this matter in our society, including dentistry is still lacking. Dental erosion is an irreversible loss of dental hard tissue leading to a complex condition. To prevent detrimental effects, it is important to detect conditions as early as possible and inhibit progression. In children and adolescents, early intervention is more important than in adults. As dental erosion is a multifactorial condition, dentists need to fully understand the phenomena and do systematic oral examination with thorough history taking for early diagnosis. When the main etiological factor is detected, it is necessary to make an effort to eliminate it and stop progression of the lesions with preventive measures. Restorative treatment should not be started unless substance loss reaches a certain level. Once the decision is made for treatment, care must be taken to choose the least invasive method.
