Restoration of the worn dentition

Restoration of the worn dentition Although tooth wear is considered to be age dependent, an increasing number of both adult and young patients is experiencing tooth wear, usually erosive in nature. It can present in variety of forms and severity. Prevention of further tooth wear should form the basis of care but in severe cases interventive restorative treatment may be necessary in order to protect vulnerable tooth surfaces and re-establish satisfactory appearance and function. Indications for interventive restorative treatment are: unacceptable appearance of the teeth, loss of normal function and progressive tooth wear resulting in pulp necrosis and/or difficulty in teeth restoration. The restorative treatment options possible with today's materials and techniques include: conventional fixed restorations, removable onlay/overlay prostheses and minimal preparation adhesive restoration.

Abstract

Although tooth wear is considered to be age dependent, an increasing number of both adult and young patients is experiencing tooth wear, usually erosive in nature. It can present in variety of forms and severity. Prevention of further tooth wear should form the basis of care but in severe cases interventive restorative treatment may be necessary in order to protect vulnerable tooth surfaces and re-establish satisfactory appearance and function. Indications for interventive restorative treatment are: unacceptable appearance of the teeth, loss of normal function and progressive tooth wear resulting in pulp necrosis and/or difficulty in teeth restoration. The restorative treatment options possible with today's materials and techniques include: conventional fixed restorations, removable onlay/overlay prostheses and minimal preparation adhesive restoration. This article will review the restorative treatment options available to restore the worn dentition.
