The consequences of the severe wear caused by intrinsic erosion, in addition to the high cost and complexity of the treatment to restore severely worn dentition, support the importance of early diagnosis and implementation of preventive/therapeutic measures. Dental professionals must be aware of the signs and symptoms of the disease, as well as all the conditions that may lead to the presence of gastric juice in the mouth, so they can make the referral to the appropriate medical specialist. In this chapter, the main clinical conditions associated with intrinsic erosion are presented and its clinical signs and symptoms discussed from a clinical perspective.
