Abstract

Cervical lesions are those which occur because of loss of hard tooth tissue at the cementoenamel junction. According to GV Black, these lesions may be included under class V lesions because they are found at the gingival third of the facial and lingual surfaces of anterior and posterior teeth. In general, cervical lesions may occur either due to caries or other noncarious reasons which include abrasion, erosion and abfraction. Noncarious cervical lesions are etiologically and pathogenetically different from caries. Approximately 60–70% of cervical lesions fall under this category. These are usually seen as physiological changes, though may be associated with other factors like trauma, bad habits, dietary habits, etc.
