Variations in TSL patterns are such that it is difficult to ascribe a single pattern to a particular etiology (Dodds & King, 1997); however, EERD generally involving TSL affects the lingual surfaces of maxillary teeth, particularly surfaces of the maxillary incisors and canines (Alfaro, Aps, & Martens, 2008; Dodds & King, 1997) because these surfaces are more remotely located from the protective function of the salivary glands (Ersin, Oncag, Yumgor, Aydogdu, & Hilmioglu, 2006).
