Dentin exposure may be the result of attrition, abrasion, erosion or abfraction
. Denudation of root surface due to gingival recession or non-surgical and surgical periodontal treatment can also cause Dentin Hypersensitivity.
Tooth surface loss is a composite terminology which broadly covers non-carious tooth surface loss due to attrition, abrasion, abfraction
There are also a few other possibilities for using the quantitative analysis of the intraoral structures and tissue conditions such as dental enamel and dental caries , dental abfraction
and attrition , enamel erosion , enamel demineralization , thickness of dentin layer , and soft tissues .
Unattended compromised anterior guidance for longer durations can initiate attrition and abfraction
of posterior teeth, periodontal diseases due to trauma from occlusion, and temporomandibular joint disorders.
The role of cuspal flexure in the development of abfraction
lesions: A finite element study.
Attrition, abrasion, corrosion and abfraction
revisited: a new perspective on tooth surface lesions.
Signs of excessive tooth flexure can be excessive enamel crazing, tooth and restoration wear, tooth and restoration fracture, microleakage at restoration margins, recession and abfraction
Sleep bruxism can cause severe attrition that leads to exposed dentin, abfraction
, tooth mobility and tooth fracture.
An assessment of stress analyses in the theory of abfraction
. Biomed Mater Eng.
Effect of root morphology on biomechanical behavior of premolars associated with abfraction
lesions and different loading types.
This exposure can be the result of numerous etiologic factors that include abrasion, erosion, attrition, abfraction
, and gingival recession.
There are no cavities, dental enamel hypoplasia, erosions, or abfraction
lesions, which reveals a good state of oral health.
