Dental erosion in a wine merchant: an occupational hazard?
A case of dental erosion apparently caused by wine tasting is reported, and the dental professional is ideally placed to implement early preventive regimes which would make the occupation less damaging to the dentition. Expand
Fluoride Is Unable to Reduce Dental Erosion from Soft Drinks
Non-carbonated fruit-flavoured drinks contain considerable amounts of acids which, in vitro, induce erosions in teeth similar to those induced by carbonated soft drinks. Expand
Effects of milk on enamel solubility.
Tests showed that the protective agent in milk reacts rapidly with the enamel and resists washing, and that the full solubility reduction is given by treatment with casein solutions and mostly removed by washing with a protein solvent. Expand
Patterns of tooth surface loss among winemakers.
The occurrence of tooth surface loss amongst winemakers was highly likely due to frequent exposure of their teeth to wine, as occurs among wine tasters, is deleterious to enamel, and constitutes an occupational hazard. Expand
Erosive tooth wear: prevalence and severity in Swedish winetasters.
It was concluded that full-time winetasting is an occupation associated with increased risk for tooth erosion, mainly on the labio-cervical surfaces of maxillary incisors and canines. Expand
Effect of acetic, lactic and other organic acids on the formation of artificial carious lesions.
Acetic acid made a major contribution to the rate of lesion formation, even at pH 5.0 or higher and is likely to be as important as lactic acid in the in vivo caries situation. Expand
Wine tasting and dental erosion. Case report.
A case of widespread dental erosion is reported in an individual who had worked in the wine industry for ten years, with there being cervical erosion, occlusal pitting, and loss of enamel around restorations. Expand
The influence of xylitol and fluoride on dental erosion in vitro.
It was concluded that xylitol and fluoride have an additive effect in the reduction of dental erosion by pure orange juice in vitro. Expand
Differences in microbiological composition of saliva and dental plaque in subjects with different drinking habits.
It is indicated that there is a correlation between consumption of specific foods and oral health in terms of reduced plaque deposition and lower counts of odontopathogens. Expand
Etiology of dental erosion--extrinsic factors.
  • D. Zero
  • Medicine
  • European journal of oral sciences
  • 1996
The extrinsic causes of dental erosion can be grouped under the headings of environmental, diet, medications and lifestyle, and dietary factors have received the most attention and are likely to affect the broadest segment of the population. Expand
