Importance of tooth surface loss has increased in dental practice. It is difficult to determine aetiological factors and the exact diagnosis, because the symptoms are often combined. The aim of the present study was to summarise the most important factors of tooth surface loss, mainly of erosion which is a frequent form. Reviewing the literature aetiological factors, symptoms, differential diagnostic problems and therapeutic advice are discussed. Prevention, early diagnosis and treatment are very important in these patients.
