Share Abstract:

A Functional Aspect of Anterior Attrition or Flaring and Mode of Treatment


Pages: 284-289
PMID: 1524652

The phenomenon of occlusal wear has been generally reported, with no distinction being made between wear of the anterior or posterior teeth. This paper describes a group of patients without oral habits and exhibiting anterior tooth attrition or flaring with minimal posterior tooth attrition. The mandibular anterior movement patterns of the patients studied were evaluated using a Sirognathograph. These patterns appear to be the etiology for the anterior attrition or flaring present. A treatment mode allowing coexistence of this phenomenon with an anterior guidance that does not interfere with the mastication pattern is proposed. A hypothesis that might explain the clinical findings and a mode of treatment are described.
