It is concluded that the modSLA surface promoted enhanced bone apposition during early stages of bone regeneration, as compared with a standard SLA surface.
The Role of Diet in the Aetiology of Dental Erosion
The interplay between erosion and abrasion may be the main driver leading to the clinical manifestation of this disorder and recommendations for patients at risk for dental erosion will be discussed.

It is recommended that the laser device is used in the decision-making process in relation to the diagnosis of occlusal caries as a second opinion in cases of doubt after visual inspection.
Dental Erosion – An Overview with Emphasis on Chemical and Histopathological Aspects
Dental erosion starts by initial softening of the enamel surface followed by loss of volume with a softened layer persisting at the surface of the remaining tissue, thus altering its strength and structure.
Basic Erosive Wear Examination (BEWE): a new scoring system for scientific and clinical needs
The BEWE allows re-analysis and integration of results from existing studies and, in time, should initiate a consensus within the scientific community and so avoid continued proliferation of indices.
Performance and Reproducibility of a Laser Fluorescence System for Detection of Occlusal Caries in vitro
For occlusal caries, the new laser fluorescence device has a higher diagnostic validity than the ECM, and in vitro, measurements using the device are highly reproducible, so it could be a valuable tool for the longitudinal monitoring of caries and for assessing the outcome of preventive interventions.
Erosion—diagnosis and risk factors
Dental erosion is a multifactorial condition: The interplay of chemical, biological and behavioural factors is crucial and helps explain why some individuals exhibit more erosion than others. The…
Performance of Fluorescence Methods, Radiographic Examination and ICDAS II on Occlusal Surfaces in vitro
I CDAS II combined with BW showed the best performance and is the best combination for detecting caries on occlusal surfaces and LFpen, FC and ICDAS II presented better sensitivity and LF and BW better specificity.
Performance of a new laser fluorescence device for the detection of occlusal caries in vitro.
Analysis of the erosive effect of different dietary substances and medications
Erosive challenge caused a statistically significant reduction in SH for all agents except for coffee, some medications and alcoholic drinks, and non-flavoured mineral waters, teas and yogurts (P < 0·01).
