Abfraction is a theoretical concept explaining a loss of tooth structure not caused by tooth decay (non-carious cervical lesions). It is suggested that these lesions. Multiple factors are seen as contributing to the development of noncarious cervical lesions (NCCLs). The term abfraction is applied to these lesions in relation to. Evidence supports that abfraction lesions, as any NCCLs, have a multifactorial etiology. Particularly, the cervical wear of abfraction can occur.

J Esthet Restor Dent. It is important to note that studies supporting this configuration of abfraction lesions also state that when there is more than one abnormally large tensile stress on a tooth two or more abfraction lesions can result on the one surface.
Restorative material selection to minimise fracture. Characteristics of non-carious cervical lesions — an ex vivo study using micro computed tomography. The lrsions of occlusal loading on the margins of cervical restorations.
Agri and Aquaculture Journals Dr. We can only repair the teeth. By accessing the work you hereby accept the Terms. Figure 4 Abfraction lesions of different shapes, widths, and depths, characteristic of their different stages of progression. Effectiveness of arginine-containing toothpastes in treating dentine hypersensitivity: If left untreated, abfraction abfraciton lead to root canal infections, severe decay, and even tooth loss.
The full terms of this license are available at https: Abfraction is a theoretical concept explaining a loss of tooth structure not caused by tooth decay non-carious cervical lesions. The various clinical manifestations of abfraction appear to be dependent on the type and severity of the etiological factors involved. In an era of personalized dentistry, patient risk factors for NCCLs must be identified and addressed before any treatment is performed.
Another theory states that these lesions are found above the cemento- enamel junction CEJ [ 31 – 33 ] which serves as differentiating criteria to diagnose other type of cervical lesions.
Overview Did you know that smoking tobacco products can make gum disease get worse faster? This can lead to total tooth loss, after which the only treatment is to replace the lost tooth. Many researchers argue that this is inaccurate as they contend that the abfraction lesion is a multifactorial has many causative ldsions lesion with other factors such as abrasion or erosion. Baysan A, Lynch E.
Review Article Open Lesioons. Introduction Noncarious cervical lesions NCCLs develop as a result of normal and abnormal or pathological wear and cause abfraction, abrasion, and erosion or chemical degradation of dental tissues. In an era of personalized dentistry, patient risk factors for NCCLs must be identified and addressed before any treatment is performed.
It is noticed that NCCLs are common lesionss those individuals who grind their teeth leaions the forces acting are of long term duration and greater quantity [ 1621 ]. This increases the risk of tooth decay because it leaves the inner structures of the tooth vulnerable to tooth decay and bacteria. The full terms of this license are available at https: Because of this controversy the true causes of abfraction also remain disputable.
Abfraction – Wikipedia
Multiple abfraction lesions overlapping one another, as the ones observed in Figure 4seem to occur due to various forces producing tensile stress. J Am Dent Assoc. This work is published and licensed by Dove Medical Press Limited.
Many treatment strategies have been proposed to treat these NCCL lesions. Treatment of cervical sensitivity with a root sealant. Upon examination, shiny facets on the teeth or existing restorations may be indicators of the presence of abfrcation processes.

Other terms bio-corrosion has also been introduced to include all forms of biochemical and electrochemical degradation As seen in Figure 4 [ 9 ]. Other potential causes may include:. The clinical decision to restore abfraction lesions may abfeaction based on the need to replace form and function or to relieve hypersensitivity of severely compromised teeth or for abfracfion reasons.
Every clinical appearance of abfraction appears to be dependent on the type and severity of the etiological factors involved [ 7 ].
