Caries Excavation: Evolution of Treating Cavitated Carious Lesions

Falk Schwendicke (Editor), Jo E. Frencken (Editor), Nicola Innes (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

An update on one of the most relevant topics in dental medicine
Currently there is no reason, in most cases of cavitated caries lesions, to remove affected tissue. This book presents evidence-based research on the topic and provides assessments of diagnostic devices. It offers new insights into how a dentine carious cavity can be managed by either tissue removal or restoration. Methods for preserving dental tissue are presented and ample evidence highlights the need to seal with a quality restorative material. An update on how to conduct a randomized clinical trial is followed by a chapter on agreed upon terminology for supporting improved communication among oral health professionals around the world.
This is a must-read for general practitioners, restorative specialists, dental students, and oral hygienists/therapists.
