  • Dental Caries Prevention

    The prevention of dental caries is the primary purpose for dental service. “Dental caries is defined as a localized, post-eruptive, pathological process of external origin involving softening of the hard tooth tissue and proceeding to the formation of a cavity” (WHO). The centerpiece for caries prevention since the 1960’s has been the application of sodium fluoride varnish. Typically, a sodium fluoride varnish treatment is conducted twice a year. Studies have shown that children who receive…

  • Public Health Concern: The Oral Hygiene Of Women

    Just because men are more susceptible to dental caries and other negative oral health conditions does not mean that there is no hope in bettering their chances of having teeth. My approach is similar to that of that focuses on harm-reduction, or the Band-Aid approach. I can neither force young adult males living on The University of Maryland campus to improve the brushing or flossing techniques, nor can I force them to visit their dentist regularly. However, what I can and hope to do is make…

  • Noninvasive Dentistry Case Study

    INTRODUCTION The management strategies of dental caries are dependent on the stage at which caries is detected. The incipient carious lesions are characterized by subsurface dissolution due to more fluoride ions in the 50-100 microns of the tooth’s outer surface and less fluoride in subsurface region. Sub surface, non cavitated lesions are amenable to remineralization, thus early detection and diagnosis is of prime importance. 1-3 Traditionally diagnosis of dental caries…

  • Caries Risk Assessment

    Introduction Caries management by risk assessment (CAMBRA) is a strategy for caries prevention that looks at risk factors specific to the individual and what interventions should occur in order to lower or eliminate the risk factors present. There are four categories of risk levels: low-risk, moderate-risk, high-risk, and extreme-risk. Patients are assessed by risk factors and treated accordingly. The CAMBRA protocol varies for each patient and aims to provide education and treatment to either…
