The purpose of this study was to compare the whitening effect of a toothpaste containing blue pigment with a conventional toothpaste and with at-home tooth bleaching; evaluate the subject'...
This randomized double-blind two arm controlled clinical trials evaluates the hypothesis that the regular use of a tooth paste containing microcrystalline hydroxylapatite provides a caries...
- To evaluate and compare the degree of tooth discoloration in tooth crowns induced by Neo MTA versus white MTA over time. - Evaluation of the effectiveness of Neo MTA as coronal...
The purpose of this study is to determine if regular rinsing with chlorhexidine is effective as a long-term preventive method for reducing the incidence of tooth loss in low income older ...
The purpose of this clinical study was to evaluate, the effectiveness and sensitivity post-treatment of a 6% hydrogen peroxide with nitrogen-doped titanium dioxide light activated bleachin...
Fabricating a ceramic restoration for a discolored anterior tooth presents a clinical challenge. The dental technician is often hampered by being unaware of the shade of the discolored tooth preparati...
Evidence exists which suggests that a vegetarian diet is a predisposing factor to erosive tooth wear. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of dietary pattern (vegetarian, lacto-ovo vegeta...
Because orthodontic tooth movement is dependent upon osteoclast-mediated resorption of alveolar bone adjacent to the pressure side of tooth roots, biologic mediators that regulate osteoclasts can be u...

Any change in the hue, color, or translucency of a tooth due to any cause. Restorative filling materials, drugs (both topical and systemic), pulpal necrosis, or hemorrhage may be responsible. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p253)
The pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes. It is differentiated from TOOTH ATTRITION in that this type of wearing away is the result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It differs also from TOOTH EROSION, the progressive loss of the hard substance of a tooth by chemical processes not involving bacterial action. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p2)
The wearing away of a tooth as a result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It is chiefly associated with aging. It is differentiated from TOOTH ABRASION (the pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by friction, as brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes) and from TOOTH EROSION (the loss of substance caused by chemical action without bacterial action).
