Summary

Enamel wear can be associated with internal (gastric) and external (dietary) acids. Long-term effects of acid wear of the enamel can lead to sensitivity and more complicated conditions over time, with some requiring restorative treatment. Prevention is the first step in managing enamel wear and dental hygienists play a pivotal role in proactively assessing risk factors, early condition identification, client counselling, and education. Toothpaste recommendations play a significant role in client oral health. It’s important to consider fluoride, formulation, and pH as these factors can influence the balance of remineralization and demineralization of the enamel.
