L'érosion dentaire : diagnostic, étiologies, traitements

Abstract : The demineralization of dental hard tissue by chemical process, also called dental erosion has become a real public health problem. Indeed, its prevalence is expanding due to changes in the lifestyle of the population including their eating habits. The clinical and therapeutic approach of erosive lesions developed here allows us to better understand this phenomenon in order to distinguish, explain, prevent but also treat it. In a first part, the lesions are described, their differences with other dental lesions are explained and different diagnostic tools are listed to define a stage to help the best choice of treatment. The second part deals with the various factors involved in erosion, whether they are favoring (acids) or protective (saliva or acquired pellicle) and the mechanisms of action. The third part will expose the many possible etiologies at the origin of this loss of tissue whether they are intrinsic to the patient or extrinsic. Finally, the fourth part is an aid to the preventive and therapeutic management of the erosive process.
