The Science of Erosion
This presentation explores the reasons why the prevalence of acid erosion in developed countries is increasing and becoming a concern for oral health. Behaviors that contribute to hard tissue loss, including acid erosion, are defined. Recognizing the differences between caries and erosion is examined, as well as patient assessment, diagnosis, and management of this condition.
