Objective: To investigate the relationship between cervical lesions and patient age, brushing method and bruxism based on a clinical survey of first-appointment patients.
Methods: Two hundred and nine patients (118 male, 91 female) who had unfilled cervical lesions were examined. Information on patient age, teeth with lesions, classification of the lesions, brushing method and bruxism was obtained. The data were analysed statistically.
Results: Cervical lesions started to develop in the first premolar teeth in the early twenties and became more prevalent with age. A habit of bruxism was associated with an increase in cervical lesions. Brushing was not directly associated with the development of cervical lesions.
Conclusion: This study suggests that cervical lesions should be treated at an early stage to prevent further problems.

Keywords: attrition, brushing, bruxism, cervical lesion, dental paste
