This book explains how to optimize clinical conditions for detection of the earliest visible signs of dental caries and how best to assess caries activity as a basis for effective management. The available evidence from the literature on detection criteria and methods is distilled and placed in a clinical context to facilitate implementation in Price: $ Both caries and periodontal disease are, for the most part, acquired and preventable disturbances of the teeth and jaws. Other chapters of this book are devoted to a more in-depth discussion of the cause, prevention, and management of dental caries (see Chapt 17, 18, and 19) and periodontal disturbances (see Chapters 11 and 20). Caries obviously still is a major problem in adults, as well as children, and we need an improved approach to pre-vention and therapy. This arti-cle reviews and summarizes the scientific basis for and practice of successful intervention in the caries process. THE CARIES PROCESS Bacterial plaque and acid production. The caries process.   Visual detection of caries was described as early as , in a book entitled “Skinner: A Treatise of Human Teeth.” One of the most important early contributions to diagnosis of dental caries came from G.V. Black, who was a practicing dentist before becoming dean of the Northwestern University School of Dentistry in Chicago. Black.

This book aims to define the etiological factors in dental caries and to guide the clinician towards methods of caries prevention that are evidence based. The coverage includes discussion of the active role of the biofilm and the oral environment and emphasizes the multifactorial etiology of dental caries. Dental Caries is a major new work on a subject of vital concern to all dentists. It builds on the work of two former books, Textbook of Clinical Cariology and Fluoride in Dentistry, to present a definitive resource on caries prevention and management of dental caries is central to daily work in dental offices because caries is ubiquitous in all populations, lesion development. Dental Disease Prevention: The Physician’s Role in Child Oral Health 3 Dental caries in primary teeth can has both short- and longer-term negative consequences. Caries lesions often cause pain because they can progress rapidly in primary teeth and involve the pulp before they are either detected or treated. About 1 in 10 children 2 to This book explains how to optimize clinical conditions for detection of the earliest visible signs of dental caries and how best to assess caries activity as a basis for effective management.

Dental caries is a multifactor disease affecting a significant number of people throughout the world. However, in recent decades the widespread availability of fluoride and other preventive measures have resulted in a decline in the prevalence of caries among children and young adults. Currently, it is accepted that most carious dental lesions are restricted to specific anatomical sites.   B.H. CLARKSON, CARIES PREVENTION—FLUORIDE, Adv Dent Res , December, W.H.
