Non carious cervical lesions – development, treatment, prognosis


Abstract

Thanks to the success of prevention efforts in dentistry prolonged retention of the teeth in the oral cavity is the case in a large part of the population. This has the consequence that the teeth of many people are exposed not only to a possible caries risk, but also to other influences, which may lead to structural dental hard tissue defects.

In addition to dental erosions, which are caused by acidic impacts on the teeth, other hard tissue defects are observed, such as abrasion or abfraction. Tooth abrasions and cervical abfractions are often associated with very distinctive hard tissue loss resulting in a decreased satisfaction of patients with their appearance, the oral well-being, the chewing comfort and an increase of tooth hypersensitivities. 

When treating severely worn teeth or teeth with abfractions, the aetiology needs to be respected in order achieve a positive long-lasting outcome of the treatment. The lecture presents background information about various non-carious dental hard tissue defects und provides an overview about respective treatments concepts.
