Abstract

Tooth wear is becoming increasingly significant in the developed
societies, because the etiological factors are frequently present in the daily life. The aim of this
study was to assess the distribution of the tooth wear of the adult population in a private practice
of dentistry. Material and method: The group of study had 614 patients, structured on the
following subgroups of age: 18- 30 years, 31-40, 41-50, 51-65 and more than 65 years old.
Each patient had a clinical exam and a questionnaire for the diet and the lifestyle, spotlighting
the etiology of tooth wear. Results: attrition was the most frequent (55.7%), followed by
abrasion (32.7%), erosion affected 7.5% of the patients and abfractions are the least frequent
(4.1%). Erosions (9.7%) and attritions (59.9%) are more frequent at the feminine gender, and
abrasions (40.4%) at the masculine gender. More than half of the abfractions (56%) were
found at the youth patients (18-30 years old). Erosions were found in the 31-40 years subgroup
at almost 40% of the patients; in the 41-50 years subgroup, abrasion and erosion were found
in equal proportions. Abrasion prevails at the 51-65 years subgroup (30.8%). 72% of the
consumers of acidic fruits had dental erosions. Conclusion: Tooth wear is under the influence
of the diet and the age factor.
