Severe tooth wear is discussed from the perspective of appreciating the aetiologic background of the problem. A multifactorial basis is acknowledged for the extensively worn dentition and efforts to eliminate or minimize these underlying factors are important. The management of a case of severe incisal and occlusal wear can adopt different approaches. The author proposes the rationale and advantages for involving orthodontic preparation as part of the occlusal rehabilitation.
