Once detected and diagnosed, the severity and extent of an erosive tooth wear must be recorded to establish the clinical baseline, so that progression can be detected. Longitudinal monitoring of the erosive process would enable the outcomes of the preventive and therapeutic strategies to be assessed scientifically and quantitatively at the recall and review visits. The following methods described in this chapter are available and useful for clinical assessment and monitoring of erosive tooth wear: silicone matrix system, serial reference casts, clinical photographs, and diagnostic indices such as Basic Erosive Wear Examination and Tooth Wear index.
