Tooth Erosion


Presentation

  • METHODS: We conducted a prospective cohort study of children presenting for pH-MII testing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Ion Chromatography (IC) The IC is used to determine the concentration of different anions present in the six cola drinks being tested.[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]
  • In the 1993 national study 1 52% of subjects had erosion present, with 24% having exposed dentine.[nature.com]
Asymptomatic
  • The maxillary front teeth remained asymptomatic on percussion, palpation, and cold testing. The maxillary and mandibular teeth (a) The front view; (b) The right buccal view; (c) The left buccal view; (d) The incisal and palatal view.[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]
Rigor
  • The rigorous review process does not allow any compromise in quality It is indexed in many indexing agencies and the articles are available under creative commons licence free of cost The frequency of publication supports many aspiring authors from India[doi.org]
Hoarseness
  • Extraesophageal Manifestations of GERD Extraesophageal manifestations possibly resulting from GERD include laryngeal (reflux laryngitis, hoarseness, chronic cough, vocal cord ulcer, and granuloma), pharyngeal (mucositis), respiratory (asthma, bronchitis[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]
Chronic Cough
  • Palatal erosion of maxillary incisors was found in 80% of patients with frequent respiratory symptoms such as chronic cough, laryngitis, and asthma.[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]
Aspiration
  • The rigorous review process does not allow any compromise in quality It is indexed in many indexing agencies and the articles are available under creative commons licence free of cost The frequency of publication supports many aspiring authors from India[doi.org]
  • Therefore, sleep-related acid reflux may induce similar responses, as well as the perception of heartburn, which are known to be important mechanisms responsible for salivary secretion, volumetric clearance of the refluxate, and the prevention of pulmonary aspiration[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]
Dysphagia
  • Dysphagia in bulimia nervosa. Dysphagia. 1989; 4 :106–111. [ PubMed ] [ Google Scholar ] 8. Rytomaa I, Jarvinen V, Kanerva R, Heinonen OP. Bulimia and tooth erosion. Acta Odontol Scand. 1998; 56 :36–40. [ PubMed ] [ Google Scholar ] 9.[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]
Epigastric Pain
  • Common symptoms are heart burn along the oesophageal pathway; epigastric pain localised over the stomach; regurgitation into the mouth; dysphagia with or without pain; noncardiac retrosternal pain; chronic coughing and sore throat from laryngitis; vocal[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]
Odynophagia
  • Classical symptoms of GERD in adults are heartburn and acid regurgitation causing a sour taste, with less common symptoms being dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), water brash (flooding of the mouth with saliva), odynophagia (pain on swallowing), burping[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]
Delayed Gastric Emptying
  • Alcohol consumption may also increase gastric acid secretion and delay gastric emptying, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may interfere with prostaglandin cytoprotection [ 35 ].[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]
Dental Caries
  • We recorded the prevalence and severity of tooth erosion, dental caries, and dental enamel hypoplasia. Socioeconomic and habits/dietetic data were collected by a structured questionnaire.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Soft drinks have many potential health problems, including dental caries and enamel erosion (Majewski, 2001 ). Dental caries may result from a long-term high intake of soft drinks and deterioration in oral hygiene patterns.[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]
  • Individual and contextual determinants of dental caries in Brazilian 12-year-olds in 2010. Rev. Saude Publica 2013; 47:40-9. [ Links ] 3. Whelton H.[scielo.br]
Torticollis
  • Dental erosion was only one of two extraesophageal syndromes considered to be definitely associated with GERD in pediatric patients, the other being Sandifer's syndrome (torticollis) [ 18 ].[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]
Keratosis
  • Keratosis on the tongue seems to act as a rasper that removes surface tooth material softened by decalcification.[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]
Forgetful
  • Public Pools As you set off on vacation, don’t forget to think about your teeth before you cannonball into the lazy river. Most public pools test the chlorine and pH levels daily, but you should always peek around before you dive in.[greenspointdental.com]
  • Don’t forget your tongue. Invest in a high performance electric toothbrush for super clean teeth and gums. See your dentist for check-ups and cleans every six months.[completedentalworks.com.au]

Workup

Helicobacter Pylori
  • Manometry results were abnormal in 8% of study participants, abnormal esophageal pH in 17.7%, and a pathological 24-hour pH recording in 21.3%. 3.6% were positive for Helicobacter pylori.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Endoscopy is also used to detect Barrett's esophagus and hiatal hernia and for sampling for the presence of Helicobacter pylori from gastric mucosa [ 46, 48 ]. 6.[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • The majority of drugs prescribed for the treatment of asthma are not potentially erosive.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Seeking treatment for tooth erosion is important to protecting dental health. There are a variety of treatments to repair the damage of tooth erosion.[brownbarandentistry.com]

Prognosis

  • The failure to recognize their early signs can compromise a patient's recovery and long-term prognosis. Tooth erosion has been reported as an oral manifestation that might help in the early detection of eating disorders.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • In Part 1 of this series, I discussed attrition, which is potentially the etiologic agent of tooth wear with the poorest long-term prognosis.[speareducation.com]

Etiology

  • This article briefly reviews the etiology, risk factors, and medical management of GERD. The patient presentation describes the rehabilitation of a young adult with GERD who needed multidisciplinary care.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Acids of intrinsic (gastrointestinal) and extrinsic (dietary and environmental) origins are the main etiologic factors (ten Cate and Imfeld, 1996 ; Hefferren, 2004 ).[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • Study quality was assessed using the STROBE (Strengthening the Reporting of Observational studies in Epidemiology) statement and Newcastle-Ottawa Quality Assessment Scale (NOS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Community Dentistry And Oral Epidemiology, 6 (2):78–81. [doi:10.1111/j.1600-0528.1978.tb01125.x] PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar Edwards, M., Creanor, S.L., Foye, R.H., Gilmour, W.H., 1999.[dx.doi.org]
  • Its application should be useful for research into the aetiology, prevention and monitoring of a condition, essentially being an epidemiological and clinical tool.[doi.org]
  • In epidemiologic studies, rampant caries is defined as a decayed, missed and filled teeth (DMFT) value of 5 or more, and labial caries is regarded as a specific entity (Cleaton-Jones et al., 1978 ).[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • As both gastric and duodenal reflux occur frequently in individuals suffering from GERD, a combined assessment is important in obtaining a holistic understanding of its pathophysiology [ 38 ].[pubmedcentral.nih.gov]

  • Conclusion: The addition of proteins to toothpaste shows some promise for the prevention of erosion.[dx.doi.org]
  • You should have your teeth checked regularly by your dentist to prevent the need for tooth enamel restoration. When dental erosion is caught early, your dentist is able to suggest treatment that may prevent further erosion or tooth decay.[bluecourtdental.com]
