OBJECTIVES The diagnosis of tooth wear is mostly based on visual scoring systems. Recently, methods measuring ultrasonic enamel thickness have been proposed. The aim of this study was to evaluate the reproducibility and evaluate factors affecting variation of ultrasonic enamel thickness measurements in an in vitro set up. METHODS Four observers (1-4) in two institutes (G and S) performed ultrasonic enamel thickness measurements at buccal and palatal surfaces of extracted teeth placed in a… CONTINUE READING
