    Review of the medical literature shows that BHT is not uncommon. A large cross-sectional study of 5150 Turkish dental outpatients has reported an overall prevalence of 11.3% with increased rates in men (18%) compared to women (6%). However, a cross-sectional study of 1901 Iranian dental patients only reported a prevalence of 1.2%. BHT occurred in 0.6% of Minnesota school-aged children in contrast to 8.4% patients in a young Finnish population. Discordance of the observed rates may stem from difference patient’s demographics (age, sex, ethnicity, practices and habits) and interobserver variability in defining lesions in corresponding study populations.
