Despite advancing technologies in dental caries and prevention it remains one of the most common oral diseases globally. Dental health care practitioners are challenged to continually evaluate current research and incorporate findings into clinical practice to adequately equip their patients with health promotion and preventive strategies. With a paradigm shift from drill and fill to minimally invasive dentistry, which focuses on conservation of tooth structure, a medical model of disease management needs to be incorporated. The caries management plan for each individual should be based upon reducing caries risk factors and enhancing the protective factors with the additional aid of behavior modification coupled with minimal intervention restorative dentistry, if appropriate. This CE webinar will take a look at the latest evidence-based practical guidelines for caries management along with strategies to incorporate new treatment methods into daily practice.
