Technology-enhanced caries detection and diagnosis. Sucrose and other fermentable carbohydrates are broken down by acmbra enzymes and lower salivary and plaque biofilm pH. Systemic and topical fluoride sources, adequate saliva flow, xylitol in the diet, use of calcium and phosphate paste or chlorhexidine. Motivational Interviewing in Health Care. Conclusion The strategies used for treating dental caries should have individualized consideration of the underlying disease process for each patient.

Caries disease indicators are explained as physical signs of the presence of current dental caries disease or past dental carirs disease history and activity.

These tests measure resting flow rate and pH of saliva at rest and in stimulated condition, salivary consistency, and buffer capacity. It is a dynamic and delicate balance, tipping either way caies times a day. Dental caries is caused by bacterial pathogens that are a part of complex biofilm in which Streptococcus mutans and Lactobacilli were prevalently involved.

The use of 5, ppm prescription fluoride toothpaste and home-use fluoride rinses has also been canbra. With this modern CAMBRA protocol, a novel treatment plan can be designed to arrest dental caries thereby decreasing the chance of cavitation.

Should a dental explorer be used to probe suspected carious lesions? Caries Management by Cabra Assessment CAMBRA which is an evidence-based approach focuses on determining many factors causing the expression of disease and take corrective action.

Caries Lesion Activity Assessment and Diagnosis Caries lesion activity assessment is different from the detection of caries lesion. Cariee basis for caries management by risk assessment. The clinicians can ascertain what behaviors are increasing a patient’s risk for disease and disease progression by evaluating the current caries risk of a patient.


Caries lesion activity assessment is different from the detection of caries lesion. Diagnosis and noninvasive treatments. Hamada S, Slade HD. The ion exchange dynamics are changed between the hard tissues and the ambient plaque fluids. Correlations between numbers of microflora in plaque and saliva.

Though many of these technologies show higher precision in carious lesion detection, it is important for clinicians to not rely solely on these modalities and to continue to use their clinical experience and judgment in their diagnosis.

However, one of the important caveats in using radiographs for lesion detection is the fact that a radiograph will not give information about lesion activity.

For low-risk patients the considerations must be given for remineralization, the arrest of incipient caries or pit, and fissure sealant application, which provides ultimate conservation of tooth. A randomized double-blind clinical trial. A longitudinal epidemiological study on dental plaque and the development of dental caries — Interim results after two years. Educational Objectives By the end of this session, learners will be able to: Diet affects the pH, quantity and quality of saliva.

Visible white spots on smooth surfaces. Visual-tactile examination compared with conventional radiography, digital radiography, and diagnodent in the diagnosis of occlusal occult caries in extracted premolars. Community Dent Oral Epidemiol. The effectiveness of sealants in managing caries lesions.

Note the Patient’s Medical History Step 2: J Pharm Bioallied Sci. Secondary caries and restoration replacement: 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.

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

carids Professionally applied topical fluoride: The CAMBRA system provides a more in-depth assessment tool as a key element of the overall approach and takes account of: Caries management by risk assessment, lesion activity, resin infiltrant.

There are easy-to-use chairside tests available to evaluate saliva quality. MS appear as small blue colonies and LB appear as white colonies.

J Calif Dent Assoc. Careis assessment of this balance not only helps establish risk but suggests the correct strategies to prevent or reverse the process. Following the lecture, learners were able to practice the protocol with patients and be observed and evaluated on their ability to assess risk, preform behavior management strategies, and plan caries prevention treatment plans.


Caries risk factors are described as biological reasons that cause or promote current or future caries disease. Number of mutans streptococci or lactobacilli in a total dental plaque sample does not explain the variation in caries better than the numbers in stimulated whole saliva.

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

CAMBRA was developed to promote the clinical management cambraa in which the caries disease process is managed following the medical model. Cariees Management by Risk Assessment An approach to oral health care requires clinical decision-making based on the integration of systemic assessments of clinically relevant scientific evidence relating to the patient’s oral and medical condition and history; the clinical expertise; and the patient’s treatment needs and preferences.

Effect of chlorhexidine-thymol varnish on root caries in a geriatric population: Antimicrobial Agents Antimicrobial agents destroy or suppress the growth or multiplication of microorganisms, including bacteria. What is an appropriate caries diagnosis? Diet Diet affects the pH, quantity and quality of saliva.

Salivary levels of Streptococcus mutans and lactobacilli and dental caries experiences in a US adolescent population. The findings are obtained from the patient interview and clinical examination.

Lesion Arrest and Repair Diet modification, plaque 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.

Remineralization of artificial caries-like lesions in vivo by a self-administered mouthrinse or paste. Chlorhexidine varnish for preventing dental caries in children, adolescents and young adults:
