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. Salivary levels of Streptococcus mutans and lactobacilli vambra dental caries experiences in a US adolescent population. Nil Conflict of Interest: Currently, it has been shown that the success to caries prevention and management lies with altering the complex dental biofilm changing the oral factors to favor health.

While, there is no exact pH at which demineralization begins, the general range of 5.

Antimicrobials require repeated applications at various intervals, depending on the agent. In response to these limitations in detection and diagnosis of dental caries disease, new technologies have been developed. Caries Balance and Imbalance Concept The Caries balance and fambra model was created to represent the multifactorial nature of dental caries disease and to emphasize the balance between pathological and protective factors in the caries disease process.

Resin infiltrants act by concurrent sealing of the caries lesion from the oral environment, the progression of the lesion is halted. Conduct a Risk Assessment Survey Step 2: Diagnostic accuracy of different imaging modalities in detection of proximal caries. Diagnosis and noninvasive treatments. The strategies involved in motivational interviewing are more persuasive and supportive and argumentative and are designed for the patient’s intrinsic motivation. Both quantity and quality of saliva are critical to the development and progression of dental caries disease.


Socio-economic status, developmental problems, and presence of lesions or restorations placed within the previous 3 years. Should a dental explorer be used to probe suspected carious lesions?

Determine if referral to the primary oral health care provider is necessary. This publication predates our implementation of the Educational Summary Report in and thus displays a different format than newer publications.

Note the Patient’s Dental History Step 3: Please review our privacy policy. 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. Motivational Interviewing in Health Care. Caries can be managed by adding chemical therapy, based on the assessed caries risk level, coupled with necessary restorative procedures.

Protective factors also include fluoridated water; regularly using fluoridated toothpaste, low-fluoride oral rinses and xylitol; and receiving topical applications of fluoride, chlorhexidine, and calcium phosphate agents. A review of the efficacy of chlorhexidine on dental caries and the caries infection.

Lesion Arrest and Repair Diet modification, plaque removal and anti-bacterial strategies, stimulation of salivary flow, and sealing of lesions, all lead to reduction or elimination of acid attacks on the tooth surface. Bacteria Dental caries disease is bacteria-driven and because carious lesions are late-stage symptoms of the disease, the evaluation of microbiological findings dambra assist clinicians in implementing early interventions to acries arrest the disease.

While most research concerning power toothbrushes focuses on the ability of the brush to remove plaque biofilm, power toothbrushes may be helpful in the delivery and retention of fluoride.

The CAMBRA philosophy advocates the detection of the carious lesion at the earliest possible stage so the process can be reversed or arrested before cavitation, and subsequent restoration is needed. Helping Patients Change Behavior.

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

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. Your session is about to expire. Biology, immunology, and cambda of Streptococcus mutans. After the recognition of the multi factorial nature of caries involving the biofilm, the contemporary approaches focused mainly on the various options to cope with the locally out-of-balance oral biofilm and stop the progression of the disease.


Because of their pathologic nature, risk factors can also serve as an explanation of what could be corrected in order to improve the imbalance that exists. CAMBRA supports the use of remineralization with chemical agents for early precavitated lesions sealing of occlusal non-cavitated lesions[ 1415 ] along with tooth-preserving and minimally invasive restorative techniques when deemed necessary in treating cavitated lesions.

Clinical protocols for caries management by risk assessment. If the infectious disease is allowed to progress and demineralization is not countered with remineralization, cavitations will result. Touger-Decker R, van Loveren C.

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.

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

Identify both prescription and over the counter oral health products available for patient use in the remineralization of enamel and the prevention of dental caries. Community Dent Oral Epidemiol. CAMBRA clinical guidelines recommend the use of antimicrobials for patients over 6 years of age who are classified as being at high or extreme risk for caries. Implementing caries risk assessment and clinical interventions.

Visible accumulations of plaque and quantitative assessment of Streptococcus mutans and Lactobacillifrequent snacking, saliva flow and salivary modifying factors, fissure anatomy, root surface exposure, and the presence of appliances. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC.
