While originally developed in response to a need to provide effective restorative and preventive treatment in underserved communities where running water and electricity might not always be available, over the past two decades, the atraumatic restorative treatment (ART) approach has become a worldwide phenomenon; used not only in some of the poorest(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the in vivo scientific evidence of the ability of resin infiltration (RI) to arrest non-cavitated caries lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS The PubMed database was searched for randomized controlled trials that evaluated the in vivo effect of RI versus placebo or other preventive treatment on the(More)
Epidemiological data on dental caries show that prevention and treatment needs have evolved significantly over the past two decades. In younger patients the distribution of caries lesions is mainly found on the occlusal surfaces. The treatment approaches utilised by dentists must evolve to integrate preventive and treatment solutions tailored to the care(More)
OBJECTIVES This study investigated the thresholds at which general dentists in Kuwait would restore approximal and occlusal carious lesions and examined the demographic characteristics of the dentists in relation to their decision making. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The study population consisted of a random sample of 185 general dentists practicing in the(More)
A survey conducted in 2002 among French general dental practitioners (GPs) showed variations between treatment decisions and a tendency towards early restorative intervention for caries. The aims of the present questionnaire survey were to investigate, among a random sample of 2,000 French GPs, the management decisions for occlusal lesions in 2012 and to(More)
The present manuscript presents the results of a six-year retrospective study validating caries risk assessment in a caries management by risk assessment program in a large predominantly adult patient population seeking dental care. CRA was successful in accurately identifying patients at high caries risk. Caries risk assessment in a CAMBRA program is a(More)
It has not been established whether transmission of mutans streptococci occurs between unrelated children older than 4 years of age. The aim of the study was to investigate the possible transmission of mutans streptococci genotypes from child to child in kindergarten. We studied 96 children (ages 5-6 yrs) in three San Francisco Bay Area public schools.(More)
The concept of minimal intervention dentistry is based on all the factors that affect the onset and progression of disease and therefore integrates concepts of prevention, control and treatment. The field of minimal intervention dentistry is wide, including the detection of lesions as early as possible, the identification of risk factors (risk assessment)(More)
The minimum intervention (MI) approach summarises a clinical, evidence-based rationale for the preventive and cause-related approach to oral diseases in general and to caries in particular. MI oral care with respect to the management of patients suffering from dental caries is a concept based on an updated understanding of the histopathological carious(More)
Variation in the terminology used to describe clinical management of carious lesions has contributed to a lack of clarity in the scientific literature and beyond. In this article, the International Caries Consensus Collaboration presents 1) issues around terminology, a scoping review of current words used in the literature for caries removal techniques, and(More)
