Introduction. How the Detection, Assessment, Diagnosis and Monitoring of Caries Integrate with Personalized Caries Management: Pitts, N.B. Clinical Visual Caries Detection: Topping, G.V.A. Pitts, N.B. Traditional Lesion Detection Aids: Neuhaus, K.W. Ellwood, R. Lussi, A. Pitts, N.B. Novel Lesion Detection Aids: Neuhaus, K.W. Longbottom, C. Ellwood, R. Lussi, A.

Detection and monitoring of early caries lesions: a review
  • I. Pretty, K. Ekstrand
  • Medicine
  • European archives of paediatric dentistry : official journal of the European Academy of Paediatric Dentistry
  • 2016
TLDR
The current evidence base suggests that while there are numerous devices or technology-enabled detection systems, the use of a careful, methodical visual inspection of clean, dry teeth, supplemented where indicated by radiographic views, remains the standard of care in caries detection and diagnostics. Expand
What is an appropriate caries diagnosis?
  • V. Baelum
  • Medicine
  • Acta odontologica Scandinavica
  • 2010
TLDR
Since the dental clinician's caries-related decision making is a script-matching enterprise in which clinical decisions are made on the basis of ‘this-lesion-needs-this-kind-of-treatment’ reasoning, the methods and strategies employed for caries lesion detection should accommodate this fact. Expand
Modern perspectives on caries activity and control.
  • N. Pitts
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Journal of the American Dental Association
  • 2011
TLDR
If the authors are to be able to plan treatment for and with their patients properly, they need to stage lesion severity, assess lesion activity and take the patient’s overall caries risk into account. Expand
Best clinical practice guidance for management of early caries lesions in children and young adults: an EAPD policy document
TLDR
It was concluded that visual and radiographic caries detection should be utilised as a basic diagnostic approach to locate, assess and monitor non-cavitated caries lesions in primary and permanent teeth. Expand
The American Dental Association Caries Classification System for clinical practice: a report of the American Dental Association Council on Scientific Affairs.
TLDR
The ADA Caries Classification System (CCS) offers clinicians the capability to capture the spectrum of caries disease presentations ranging from clinically unaffected (sound) tooth structure to noncavitated initial lesions to extensively cavitated advanced lesions. Expand
Caries Diagnosis: A Comprehensive Exercise
TLDR
In this chapter, the importance of the socioeconomic status of the families and cultural aspects in the decision-making process is highlighted and the validity of using caries risk assessment models for predicting new carious lesions in children is discussed. Expand
International Caries Detection and Assessment System (ICDAS) and its International Caries Classification and Management System (ICCMS) - methods for staging of the caries process and enabling dentists to manage caries.
TLDR
The evolution of these systems over the past decade are explained and how they are being used for staging of the caries process are outlined in order to enable dentists to manage caries appropriately. Expand
Noncavitated active caries lesions at occlusal surfaces presented higher risk of progression than inactive ones.
Article Title and Bibliographic Information Validation of visual caries activity assessment: a 2-yr cohort study. Guedes RS, Plovesan C, Ardenghi TM, Emmanuelli B, Braga MM, Ekstrand KR, Mendes FM. JExpand
Current Novel Caries Diagnostic Technologies: Restorative Dentists’ Attitude and Use Preferences
TLDR
Investigation of the preferences and attitude of graduate restorative dentistry residents regarding novel caries diagnostic technologies (NCDT) and a brief overview of available technologies for both specialized and general dental practice found high price rated as the most perceived reason for not choosing a given NCDT followed by low practical applicability. Expand
Analytical approaches to study Dental Caries
Dental caries is an infection, bacterial in origin that causes demineralization and destruction of the hard tissues of the teeth. It is a result of the production of acid by bacterial fermentation ofExpand

Background level care.
  • N. Pitts
  • Medicine
  • Monographs in oral science
  • 2009
TLDR
It is proposed that, in addition to the use of criteria for lesion extent, treatment planning systems should also express the results of lesion assessments in terms of background level care (BLC), preventive treatment options and operative treatment options. Expand
Lesion activity assessment.
TLDR
Evidence from high-quality basic research and epidemiological, clinical and intervention studies is discussed and it is suggested that there is a fair agreement between visual/tactile external scripts of caries and the severity/depth of the lesion. Expand
Traditional lesion detection aids.
TLDR
Both radiography and FOTI can improve the sensitivity of caries detection, but require sufficient training and experience to interpret information correctly. Expand
Personalized treatment planning.
This chapter aims to outline a flexible framework which the dental team can use to bring together key elements of information about their patients and their patients' teeth in order to planExpand
Novel lesion detection aids.
Several non-invasive and novel aids for the detection of (and in some cases monitoring of) caries lesions have been introduced in the field of 'caries diagnostics' over the last 15 years. ThisExpand
The Caries Management System: an evidence-based preventive strategy for dental practitioners. Application for adults.
TLDR
The challenge today is to develop a non-invasive model of practice that will sustain a low level of primary caries experience in the younger generation and reduce risk of cariesExperience in the older generations. Expand
Preventive Care Advised (PCA)/Operative Care Advised (OCA)--categorising caries by the management option.
TLDR
A new system of categorisation is proposed that differentiates between lesions which normally require operative intervention and those which do not, in order to improve upon the meaningfulness and comparability of such systems in the light of increasing knowledge about the disease process, lesion behaviour and caries management options. Expand
Are We Ready to Move from Operative to Non-Operative/Preventive Treatment of Dental Caries in Clinical Practice?
TLDR
The answer to the question posed in the title should be, in many cases, that the authors are ready to move to non-operative/preventive care (if they have not done so already), however, this should be for appropriate stages of lesion extent and in patients who respond to advice on recall frequency and preventive behaviours. Expand
Recall, reassessment and monitoring.
TLDR
The selection of a recall interval is a multifaceted and complex decision involving the judgement of both clinician and patient, and it should be used to determine personalized variable time intervals to assess, reassess and monitor the oral health and caries status of patients. Expand
Patient caries risk assessment.
TLDR
There is a strong body of evidence to support that caries experience is still, unfortunately, the single best predictor for future caries development and the usefulness of additional risk factors for prediction purposes is at best questionable in schoolchildren, adolescents and adults. Expand
