Epidemiological studies carried out on dental erosion have established that the prevalence is high in young people and adolescents. The objective of this study was to look at the prevalence and etiology of dental erosion, particularly in children, and its practical management for its possible control. The children between 5-6 yrs were examined and findings recorded, and this study has shown that approximately 1/3rd of 5-6 yrs old children have appreciable tooth wear and dental erosion.
