Erosionsskador hos barn och ungdomar
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Aim: The aim of this study was to examine and explain the various methods available to rate the erosion damage, and on which teeth and tooth surfaces of erosion damage mostly occurs in children and adolescents.
Method: A literature review was conducted, based on 15 scientific articles that have been reviewed, evaluated and analyzed. Articles were searched for in the database PubMed.
Result: Six of the articles used the TWI (tooth wear index), which is an index to diagnose the tooth wear in the primary and permanent dentition. Eight articles used other indices as they considered that the TWI was not sufficiently developed to register the degree of tooth wear on some teeth. Tooth wear in the primary dentition occurs most often in the canines and incisors. Tooth wear in the permanent dentition was found in the literature to be mostly occurring on the occlusal / incisal surfaces of all teeth and tooth surfaces.Lyssna
Conclusion: There is no common index in the articles but many of them use the TWI. It may therefore be beneficial for the future to development a common index that can be useful for all age groups and categories in order to diagnose the tooth wear.
