Diet modification, plaque removal and camvra strategies, stimulation of salivary flow, and sealing of lesions, all lead to reduction or elimination of acid attacks on the tooth surface. Salivary levels of Streptococcus mutans and lactobacilli and dental caries experiences in a US adolescent population.

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

Reducing the amount and frequency of carbohydrate consumption, continues to be important for patients at high-risk for caries. The Xambra system provides a more in-depth assessment tool as a key element of the overall approach and takes account of: Bacteria 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.


Progression or reversal of caries disease is determined by the imbalance between disease indicators and risk factors on one side and the competing protective factors on the opposite. Diagnostic accuracy of different imaging modalities in detection acries proximal caries.

J Calif Dent Assoc. Saliva The salivary components help modulate the bacterial attachment in plaque biofilm, the pH and buffering capacity of saliva, antibacterial properties, and tooth surface remineralization and demineralization. There is now a monoclonal antibody test that uses a specific immunochromatography process that selectively detects the S.

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. It also allows for greater communication and understanding between all members of the dental team.

Protective Factors Caries protective factors are biologic or therapeutic measures that can be used to prevent or arrest the pathologic challenges posed by the caries risk factors.

The CAMBRA system provides a more in-depth assessment tool as a key element of the overall approach and takes account of:.

Eur J Oral Sci. Visual-tactile examination compared with conventional radiography, digital radiography, and diagnodent in the diagnosis of occlusal occult caries in extracted premolars.

Role of Streptococcus mutans in human dental decay. To view all publication components, extract i. It has been suggested that an appropriate use of the explorer is to use it to remove plaque and to determine surface roughness of non-cavitated lesions by running the explorer across the tooth surface. Recent research has shown that one sonic toothbrush enhances effects of fluoride on the plaque biofilm, causing increased fluoride delivery and retention at the tooth surface.

Without adequate saliva, the oral clearance of sugary or acidic foods will be longer, and less urea is available to help raise plaque biofilm pH.
