Risk Factors Caries risk factors are described as biological reasons that cause or promote current or future caries disease. Reducing the amount and frequency of carbohydrate consumption, continues to be important fambra patients at high-risk for caries. The lesion may become less opaque and thus less visible as it regains translucency. Antimicrobials require repeated applications at various intervals, depending on the agent.

Clinical protocols for caries management by risk assessment. Your session is about to expire. Carles 2, Sucrose and other fermentable carbohydrates are broken down by salivary enzymes and lower salivary and plaque biofilm pH.

To view all publication components, extract i.

The chemical therapy used for high-risk patients is a combination of daily antibacterial therapy 0. The tool assigns patients to low, moderate, high, or extreme risk and offers two formats, one for patients aged years, and one for 6 years onward. Note the Patient’s Medical History Step 2: Dental caries occurs through a complex interaction over time between acidogenic microorganisms and fermentable carbohydrate, and host factors including teeth and saliva.

Digital radiography has been shown to provide an advantage in lesion detection compared with conventional radiography. Visual-tactile examination compared with conventional radiography, digital radiography, and diagnodent in the diagnosis of occlusal occult caries in extracted premolars.


Pathology, diagnosis and logical management. The basic preventive steps for moderate and high-risk patients are patient motivation, diet counseling, tooth brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, few times a week, sugar-free gum chewing gums, and sealants.

Dental caries disease is bacteria-driven and because carious lesions are late-stage symptoms of the disease, the evaluation of microbiological findings would assist clinicians in implementing early interventions to help arrest the disease. Caries dynamic and caries risk. Diet modification, caires removal and anti-bacterial strategies, stimulation of salivary flow, and sealing of lesions, all lead to reduction or elimination of acid attacks on the tooth surface.

The Evidence for Caries Management by Risk Assessment (CAMBRA®).

Curing the silent epidemic: Salivary levels of Streptococcus mutans and lactobacilli and dental caries experiences in a US adolescent population. Bacterial specificity in the etiology of dental caries. Caries risk assessment in practice for age 6 through adult. The effectiveness of sealants in managing caries lesions.

Caries risk factors are described as biological reasons that cause or promote current or future caries disease. Habits While the use of fluoride has decreased the need cqries strict dietary control of sucrose, dental caries disease does not occur in the absence of dietary fermentable carbohydrates.

The Evidence for Caries Management by Risk Assessment (CAMBRA®).

Prevention and management protocols based on caries risk assessment. The basis for caries management by risk assessment. Socio-economic status, developmental problems, and presence of lesions or restorations placed within the previous 3 years.

Recently, the concept of caries management has been changed and focused mainly on the multifaceted nature of caries and biofilm involvement.

University of Michigan School of Dentistry. The strategies used for treating dental caries should have individualized consideration of the underlying disease process for each patient. Touger-Decker R, van Loveren C. Abstract The current trend in treating dental caries is using nondestructive risk-based caries management strategies rather than focusing on the restorative treatment alone.


Caries management by risk assessment, lesion activity, resin infiltrant. It is well understood among dental professionals that adherence and motivation are issues for many patients, and lack of adherence or noncompliance affects outcomes across all dental disciplines. There has been a correlation between MS levels in plaque biofilm and in saliva. This involves an evaluation of the etiologic and protective factors carie the establishment of the risk for future disease, followed by the development of a patient-centered evidence-based caries management plan.

Please review our privacy policy. Role of Streptococcus mutans in human dental decay. The CAMBRA 15 system was developed as an evidence-based approach to the prevention, reversal, and treatment of patients with dental caries.

Resin Sealants and Infiltrants Sealants protect the surface by blocking continuous attacks by plaque acids. Compend Contin Educ Dent. A randomized double-blind clinical trial.

Conduct a Risk Assessment Survey Step 2: Bad bacteria, meaning acidogenic, aciduric or cariogenic bacteria. Footnotes Source of Support: Determine the caries risk level i. The CAMBRA system provides a more in-depth assessment tool as a key element of the overall approach and takes account of:.

After the recognition of the multi factorial nature of caries involving the biofilm, the contemporary approaches focused mainly on the various options to cope with the locally out-of-balance oral biofilm and stop the progression of the disease. Number of mutans streptococci or lactobacilli in a total dental plaque sample does not explain caeies variation in caries better than the numbers in stimulated whole saliva.
