What is the Relative Dentine
Abrasivity (RDA) of a toothpaste?
Although the aforementioned occlusion materials have been reported to provide some relief to patients, the dentine
tubules occluded by some of these materials are reported to be superficial with limited infiltration depth-which could be readily re-exposed in an acidic environment.
Histological analysis point to clefts in dental hard tissues especially dentine
, marked globular dentine
and increased predentin width (2,7,9).
It has been identified in the dental pulp cells and the dentine
matrix, where under pathological conditions, the growth factor can be released to stimulate angiogenesis (11-13).
In the present study, the prevalence of dental caries according to CAST is presented by giving codes 4-7 for dentine
lesions, codes 3-7 for enamel and dentine
lesions and codes 2, 5-8 for caries experience for comparison with the WHO criterion.

Overbrushing which has worn away the protective enamel from the surface of your teeth leaving the sensitive dentine
Teeth can naturally regenerate dentine
without assistance, but only under certain circumstances.
However, GP cannot spontaneously bond to root dentine
 or to sealers, leading to microleakage resultant of voids and gaps between GP and sealer .
Objective: To compare the remaining dentine
thickness of root canals prepared with K-3 and ProTaper files.
Regenerative endodontics implies that further root maturation results in reestablishment of the pulp dentine
A study in Sabah region10 demonstrated that out of 148 people inspected, 95 have TW with moderate dentine
involvement and 41 have seriously worn dentition.
