Genetic Aspects of Dental Erosive Wear and Dental Caries (Review Article) -

The present review aims to give an overview of the literature focusing on novel genetic aspects of dental erosion and dental caries. Once the tooth erupts into the oral cavity, the regenerative capability of enamel is fundamentally limited due to the loss of dental epithelium during eruption. The susceptibility or resistance to dental erosion and caries is presumably a result of environmental, phenotypic, and/or genetic influence. Even though it is evident that individuals frequently exposing their teeth to acid and sugar are at high risk of developing dental erosion and caries, the findings exclusively based on these factors are elusive.

Erosive properties of sour sweets and drinks -

Dental erosion has a multifactorial etiology with contributions from chemical, biological and behavioral factors. In terms of chemical factors, type of foods and drinks is important. The chemical factors that determine whether foods and drinks are erosive are low pH, type of acid, meaning a low acid dissociation constant (pKa), high buffer capacity and low […]

Opinions and Treatment decisions for Dental Erosion -

Icelandic dentists are well educated for diagnosis and treatment of dental erosion, but more emphasizes on causative factors are needed. These are the conclusions from a recent questionnaire study among dentists in Iceland.
