OBJECTIVES This study aimed to evaluate the reliability of a new CAD-CAM Laser scanning machine in detection of incisal tooth wear through a 6-month period and to compare the accuracy of using this new machine against measuring tooth wear using tool maker microscope and conventional tooth wear index. METHODS Twenty participants (11 males and 9 females, mean age=22.7 years, SD=2.0) were assessed for incisal tooth wear of lower anterior teeth using Smith and Knight clinical tooth wear index… CONTINUE READING
