The aim of this in situ study was to test the effect of toothbrush abrasion on enamel previously exposed to a standardized artifical erosive agent. To generate moderate erosive lesions, slabs of the buccal surface of human premolars were immersed in a solution of citric acid for 3 min. Then they were attached to intraoral appliances and each one was exposed for 0 min (= toothbrushing immediately after intraoral exposure), 30 or 60 min to the oral milieu of 1 of 7 female subjects with a mean age… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Brushing Abrasion of Softened and Remineralised Dentin: An in situ Study
TLDR
It is concluded that for protection of dentin surfaces at least 30 min should elapse before toothbrushing after an erosive attack.
Effect of Toothpastes with Different Abrasives on Eroded Human Enamel: An in situ/ex vivo Study
TLDR
The data revealed that surface roughness and wear depth is increased when erosion is combined with dental abrasion, regardless of the abrasive used, and waiting for 1 h to brush the eroded blocks offered no protective effect.
Effect of Salivary Stimulation on Erosion of Human and Bovine Enamel Subjected or Not to Subsequent Abrasion: An in situ/ex vivo Study
TLDR
The data suggest that the salivary stimulation after an erosive or erosivesive/abrasive attack can reduce the dental wear and the %SMH.
Abrasive wear on eroded root dentine after different periods of exposure to saliva in situ.
TLDR
The data suggest that the exposure time of saliva of up to 60 min has no effect on reducing the eroded dentine wear by toothbrushing.
Controlled Toothbrush Abrasion of Softened Human Enamel
TLDR
Neither soft nor hard toothbrushes produced significantly different toothbrush abrasion of softened human enamel in this model (p > 0.05).
A Study in vitro of the Abrasive Effect of the Tongue on Enamel and Dentine Softened by Acid Erosion
TLDR
The results suggest that the tongue could exert an abrasive effect on dental tissues softened by erosion, thereby increasing the overall loss of tooth substance.
Efficacy of Waiting Periods and Topical Fluoride Treatment on Toothbrush Abrasion of Eroded Enamel in situ
TLDR
In the fluoride groups, enamel loss was significantly lower than after brushing with the fluoride-free toothpaste and comparable to values after erosion only (n.s.), whilst the application of fluoride appeared promising.
In situ Evaluation of Different Remineralization Periods to Decrease Brushing Abrasion of Demineralized Enamel
TLDR
It is concluded that abrasion resistance of softened enamel increases with remineralization period and at least 60 min should elapse before toothbrushing after an erosive attack.

Progression and surface ultrastructure of in vitro caused erosive lesions in human and bovine enamel.
TLDR
The structure of enamel greatly modified the progression of in vitro caused erosion, in particular in human tooth specimens, which was found more liable to erosion than non-polished enamel.
Scanning electron microscopic study of the effect of salivary pellicle on enamel erosion.
TLDR
Salivary pellicle was found to protect the underlining enamel from erosion in vitro and appeared to attack more the prism sheath areas.
Prediction of the erosive potential of some beverages.
TLDR
The data suggest the possibility of predicting erosion caused by a beverage with an accuracy of 7%.
Surface ultrastructure of rat molar teeth after experimentally induced erosion and attrition.
TLDR
Young Osborne-Mendel rats were given different diets for 6 weeks to study effects of soft and rough food as well as acidic sport drink on the lingual surfaces of first mandibular molars; the effect of fluoride on erosion was examined.
Dentin abrasion (RDA), enamel abrasion (REA) and polishing scores of dentifrices sold in Switzerland.
TLDR
The radiotracer dentin (RDA) and enamel (REA) abrasion scores of the 32 dentifrices were determined using the ADA specifications using a standard abrasive, calcium pyrophosphate (Ca2P2O7), which was used as the standard in the enamel polish study.
Erosion on abraded dental hard tissues by acid lozenges: an in situ study
TLDR
Excessive consumption of acidic lozenges could have the potential to enhance existing dental erosion and orange juice was found to be capable of significantly softening abraded enamel.
Pathogenesis and modifying factors of dental erosion.
TLDR
Present data does not allow the ranking of different acids with regard to their potential of causing erosion, nor is there consensus as to how effective fluorides are in preventing the progression of erosive lesions, or how the chemical and structural factors of tooth tissue in general might modify this pathological process.
The influence of different factors on in vitro enamel erosion.
TLDR
Multiple linear regression analyses revealed that the erosive capacity of different drinks, juices and foodstuffs are statistically significantly associated with their acidity, pH values, phosphate and fluoride contents as well as the baseline surface microhardness or iodide permeability values of the exposed enamel.
Prevalence of oral soft and hard tissue lesions related to mechanical toothcleansing procedures.
TLDR
The subjects with a good oral hygiene status, as well as those who brushed more than twice daily, showed a high frequency of lesions, and the various toothbrushing techniques did not influence the development of such lesions in the present material.
Comparison of the iodide permeability test, the surface microhardness test, and mineral dissolution of bovine enamel following acid challenge.
TLDR
It is concluded that both the Ip test and the SMH test can be used as measures of the early stages of enamel dissolution.
