40 Clinical occlusal caries detection methods

Layla Nabaa et al.

Along with the evolution of dental materials and techniques for the management of dental caries, practices where these treatments are provided have changed. No longer does the detection of the caries process ultimately aim to amputate it by having the tooth drilled or extracted. Other minimal invasive treatment options are available along with an armament of non operative and preventive measures. This had led the clinical settings to take on different instruments to provide the least invasive options for the affected teeth and preventive procedures to the largest number of clinically unaffected teeth in “at risk” Patients. For a successful caries managing practice, the dental clinician and team are left to provide their patients with the correct diagnosis and risk assessments to form the strong basis on which all the rest is built and then offer monitoring means to follow-up on their treatment outcomes.
