Dental erosion is increasingly common. The effect of erosion, in particular if generalised, can be profound, with lifelong consequences for the prognosis of the dentition. Given new understanding and knowledge of the aetiology of dental erosion and its management, Dental Erosion is a timely and valuable addition to the popular Quintessentials of Dental Practice series.
In common with the other carefully targeted books in the series, a modern, evidence-based, preventative approach, underpinned by systematic history taking and diagnosis, is strongly advocated. Mindful of the busy practitioner’s time and opportunity to read and digest dental publications, Dental Erosion presents the essence of the subject in a concise, well-illustrated, easy-to-read style, highlighting key issues of immediate practical relevance.
With many more patients, notably adolescents and young adults presenting with dental erosion, Dental Erosion will be of assistance to practitioners of all ages and levels of experience, seeking to provide their patients with state-of-the-art care. If you are uncertain about aspects of dental erosion observed in your patients, this book will be an excellent addition to your reference texts–another jewel in the Quintessentials series crown.
