Abstract/Summary Toothwear in children and adolescents is a common condition with a prevalence rate severalfold that of caries. It many begin in the primary dentition of a young child and persist to involve the permanent dentition in adulthood. As many children with mild-to-moderate toothwear do not complain of symptoms, by the time of presentation the condition can be associated with extensive destruction of the primary and young permanent dentition, loss of aesthetics and masticatory function, pulpal exposure and abscess formation.
