According to recent research, the proteins found at increased levels in the low tooth wear group and proteins exclusively found in the low tooth wear group might be protective.

The aim of this study by the European Journal of Oral Sciences was to compare the acquired enamel pellicle protein profile of professional wine tasters with mild and moderate erosive tooth wear.

Twelve professional wine tasters participated (3 from a low tooth wear group; 9 from a high tooth wear group). Acquired enamel pellicle samples were collected and processed for proteomic analysis (nLC?ESI?MS/MS).

The acquired enamel pellicle proteomic profile was different between the groups. And the findings were;

--The proteins found exclusively in the low tooth wear group were histatins 1 and 3 and mucins 7 and 21.

--When comparing the wear groups, proteins with higher levels in the low tooth wear group included neutrophil defensins (1 and 3), lysozyme C, lysozyme, myeloperoxidase, and squalene monooxygenase.

In conclusion, the findings indicate that the proteins found at higher levels in the low tooth wear group and proteins exclusively found in the low tooth wear group might be effective.
