Abstract: Aims: This study aims to investigate the risk factors and relationships between non - carious cervical lesions NCCL, cervical dentin hypersensitivity CDH, and gingival recession GR in a Jordanian population. A total of 115 patients were evaluated, and 5100 teeth were analyzed. The study found that the distributions of NCCL, CDH, and GR were 88.1, 89.1, and 59.4, respectively, with the maxillary premolars being the most affected. The study also found a positive correlation between age, NCCL, and GR NCCL and CDH CDH and GR GR and NCCL. Age, gender, oral hygiene, gastroesophageal disease, and underlying trauma were significantly associated with the presence of all three conditions. The study concludes that the distributions of NCCL and GR increase with age, and that changes in depth and morphology contribute to the high level of sensitivity and severity of recessions.
