BACKGROUND This paper addresses methodological issues in the field of tooth wear and erosion research including the epidemiological indices, and identifies future work that is needed to improve knowledge about tooth wear and erosion. METHODS The paper is result of the work done at the meetings of the Special Interest Group "Tooth Surface Loss and Erosion" at the 2008, 2009 and 2010 conferences of the European Association for Dental Public Health, and the Workshop "Current Erosion indices… 
Tooth wear in Swedish adults - a cross-sectional study.
TLDR
A high level of tooth wear was found in 4.6% of the individuals, and it was more common in men than women, and the aetiology was determined based on the clinical appearance.
Risk factors, assessment and management of dental erosion in dental setting- A literature review
TLDR
Comprehensive knowledge of the different risk factors is a prerequisite to initiate adequate preventive and therapeutic measures in dental practice and, if necessary, therapeutic (interventive) measures.
[Dental erosion in a sample of Valencian children. Prevalence and evaluation of eating habits].
TLDR
To determine the prevalence of dental erosion in temporary dentition using the Basic Erosive Wear Examination Index in children between 5 and 12 years of age, and to determine the eating habits that may favor the development of these lesions, a cross-sectional study was carried out.
A national survey of tooth wear on facial and oral surfaces and risk factors in young Nigerian adults
TLDR
Tooth wear was common in the population of young Nigerian adults and the frequency of tooth brushing, use of chewing sticks and other local tooth cleaning agents may be contributory.
Investigations Of The Potential Effects Of Different Preventive Products On Treatment And Prevention Of Enamel Surface Loss

TLDR
The effect of dental erosion and tooth brushing abrasion combined can be decreased by toothpastes containing amine fluoride and sodium fluoride, whereas no protection was observed with the stannous and isine fluoride paste.
ATTITUDE AND AWARENESS TOWARD TOOTH WEAR AMONG ADULTS IN PULAU PINANG
TLDR
Focus on awareness for modification of behavioural habits is able to provide positive implication by reducing modifiable risk towards better oral health and the modification of attitude and practice related to tooth wear occurrence must consider the patient's background history.
Evaluation of Occlusal Incisal Tooth Wear and Its Influential Factors among Subjects Visiting a University Hospital in Pakistan
TLDR
Age more than 45 years and presence of TMJ clicking was found to be significantly associated with the tooth wear in incisors and molars.
Gastroesophageal reflux, dental erosion, and halitosis in epidemiological surveys: a systematic review
TLDR
There is a relationship between GERD and oral diseases (dental erosion and halitosis) that is significant in only seven studies, and the epidemiological surveys used different indices to analyzeGERD and dental erosion.
Dental erosive wear assessment among adolescents and adults utilizing the basic erosive wear examination (BEWE) scoring system
TLDR
It was found that the BEWE index is straightforward, easy to conduct, and comfortably accepted by the examinees and should contribute toward continued evaluation of the BewE system as an international standard and thereby, toward more optimal understanding, evidence-based treatment, and prevention of dental erosive wear.

TLDR
Results suggest that tooth wear is positively related to age and inversely related to quality of life.

Methodological considerations concerning the development of oral dental erosion indexes: literature survey, validity and reliability
TLDR
Quality criteria which an index intended for assessing tooth erosion should possess is discussed, which are not comparable to other indexes quantifying dental erosion process in different age groups.
Pathological or physiological erosion—is there a relationship to age?
TLDR
There is little evidence to support the concept that pathological levels of erosion or wear are age dependant, but there is, however, some evidence to suggest that normal levels of eroded teeth are age dependent.
How valid are current diagnostic criteria for dental erosion?
  • C. Ganss
  • Medicine
    Clinical Oral Investigations
  • 2007
TLDR
Knowing about the validity of current diagnostic criteria of different forms of tooth wear is incomplete, therefore further research is needed, and cupping and grooving might be an effect of abrasion as well as of erosion and their value for the specific diagnosis of erosion must be doubted.
The tooth wear index: a flawed epidemiological tool in an ageing population group.
TLDR
The concept of "pathological" levels of wear proposed by the TWI are challenged and modification to the index suggested for use among the elderly population is suggested.
Investigation of an index to measure tooth wear in primary teeth.
Prevalence of tooth wear in adults.
TLDR
The predicted percentage of adults presenting with severe tooth wear increases from 3% at the age of 20 years to 17% atThe age of 70 years, and increasing levels of tooth wear are significantly associated with age.
Dental erosion -- changing prevalence? A review of British National childrens' surveys.
TLDR
Comparing prevalence data from cross-sectional national studies indicates that dental erosion increases between different age cohorts of young people over time, with an association apparent between erosion, symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux and socio-demographic variables such as region of domicile, social class, and receipt of social benefits.
Dental erosion in children and adolescents--a cross-sectional and longitudinal investigation using study models.
TLDR
In Germany, dental erosion seems to be a significant, but not a serious, problem for dental health in adolescents, as well as within the last two decades for primary and with grade 1 for permanent teeth.
Diagnosis of erosive tooth wear.
TLDR
A number of evaluated and sensitive methods for in vitro and in situ approaches are available, but the fundamental problem for their clinical use is the lack of re-identifiable reference areas.
Prevalence of erosive tooth wear and associated risk factors in 2-7-year-old German kindergarten children.
TLDR
Erosive tooth wear of primary teeth was frequently seen in primary dentition and dietary factors, oral hygiene behaviour, systemic diseases and salivary calcium and phosphate concentration were not associated with the presence of erosion.
