ESCARCEL, a recent pan-European study, amongst 3,187 subjects aged 18-35, concluded that 1 in 3 young adults suffer from tooth wear. In a survey of 200 dental professionals completed in 2013, 84% said they see signs of erosive tooth wear on a weekly basis and 86% felt the condition is on the rise. This emphasises how common erosive tooth wear is throughout the population.
To help raise awareness of the risk factors for tooth wear associated with eating and drinking acidic foods and drinks found in today's diet, Pronamel are offering dental professionals access to a specially developed online module. Topics include identifying signs of tooth wear, condition management advice, the use of the Basic Erosive Wear Examination tool (BEWE) and the role of Pronamel in protection from the effects of acidic diets.
The Pronamel online CPD module is available in an easy to use format which is free of charge. Available 24 hours a day, you can access this module whenever is convenient. Completion of the module can contribute up to 1.5 hours towards your verifiable CPD.
In addition, it provides information on the Pronamel range and how it can help protect patients from the effects of erosive tooth wear.
