Abstract

Non-carious lesions from 25% of the total tooth destruction. Therefore, accurate diagnosis and implementation of the correct treatment are necessary, for example. Attrition, abrasion, erosion, is three separate and distinct processes each of which results are loss of tooth substance but the terms are used inter changeably. Such careless terminology serves only to confuse the recognition of etiology and to delay institution of proper treatment. Therefore, it is required of the operative dentist to correctly diagnosis and treats such lesion.
