CE 1: Minimalistic Approach to GERD-Related Tooth Surface Loss
Ali Tunkiwala, MDS
Loss of palatal tooth structure on maxillary anteriors due to acid reflux can cause severe restorative problems due to lack of restorative space. Aggressive preparation of such teeth to accommodate indirect restorations may jeopardize the long-term survival of such teeth as well as the restorations. This CE article aims to present a minimalistic additive modality of treatment for such cases with newer formulations of composite resins using a modification of Dahl’s concept for management of localized anterior wear.
