Prevalence and Etiologic Factors of Non Carious Cervical Lesions among Prison’s population in Dakar.
Background: The last two decades have provided a plethora of new studies concerning noncarious cervical lesions. Most significant studies are reviewed and integrated into a practical approach to the understanding and designation of abrasion, abfraction and erosion. Methods and Material: Through a cross-sectional and descriptive study, prisoners of 3 prisons (Camp Penal and prisons for women of Liberty VI and Rufisque) were examinated. We used a sterile plate of examination and a card of data collection. The lesions have to include the cervical portion of the root and a radicular part of the tooth. Results: A global prevalence of 36.8% was recorded among 375 prisoners examinated. This frequency analyzed according to the type of lesion indicates that abfraction accounted for 61.60%, erosion 26.08% and abrasion 12.32%.Conclusion: These high prevalence should require more attention of the health authorities.
