Introduction

The most common oral diseases are caries and periodontal disease.

Dental science has devoted its efforts to prevent them and reduce their percentage. But, even though these have been controlled, there is a growing percentage of non carious cervical lesions and dental wear. This will be challenging for the dentistry community in future times.


 
 
Non carious cervical lesions

A non carious cervical lesion is the pathologic loss of dental structure located at the cementoenamel junction (CEJ); it is not a bacterial etiology response.

They appear in various ways, with or without sensitivity, and they may affect the dental pulp.

Our book focuses –with rigorous seriousness- on the different types of non carious cervical lesions, its possible combinations, the problem of the cervical third and treatments corresponding to them. It provides the reader with truthful  information on diagnosis and treatments.

The first problem we had to tackle when we decided to begin this book was to choose the topics, organize them and give the importance that each topic deserves.  We are committed to providing current information and satisfying the reader.

Throughout experience gathered from different clinical situations, control, evolution and progressions of the lesions through the years, the authors have tried to transmit how to solve these situations.

The patients coming for a consultation allow us to take part in their discomfort, in their aesthetic handicap for not being able to show their teeth when smiling –to avoid showing that dark line arising from the loss of enamel and the consequent gingival recession.

In other occasions, patients come to the clinic with situations like a failures in a cervical restoration or hypersensitivity to the treatments of refractory necks.

These situations are frustrating for the dental surgeon and also very touching for the fear of failure. How to solve these situations is what the text aims at.

This book is devoted to the general practitioner; the reading will provide him/her a whole new vision that might also help him/her to get a new source of work.

This text includes personal hypotheses concerned with etiology and non carious cervical lesions, especially abfraction, since the authors´ multidisciplinary experience is combined with the complementarity of the operative dentistry, periodontics and occlusion.

The cervical third is a challenge for a dental surgeon. A well-prepared dental surgeon will improve his abilities to comply with the different types of demands, which are -every time- more numerous.
