Abfraction : rôle de l'occlusion dans les LCNC

Abstract : Non-carious cervical lesions (NCCL) are multifactorial pathologies that are increasingly present in our daily exercise. Their management is articulated among the major concept of the etiological diagnosis, which requires to know the risk factors and their mechanisms in order to put in place adapted prophylactic measures. The recent introduction of the concept of abfraction, mainly derived from biomechanics, is controversial and remains enigmatic. A bibliographic research shows that the current literature does not allow to affirm with certainty that occlusion is a risk factor contributing to the development of NCCL. However, the occlusal factor is not a factor to be neglected and will be the guarantor of the durability of our restorative therapies. Future randomized clinical trials are needed to more accurately identify the influence of occlusion in NCCL.
