Clinical Bottom Line CBCT appears to be more accurate than intraoral radiographs in detecting artificially created recurrent caries. This is based on in vitro studies that showed that CBCT assisted in diagnosing recurrent dental caries amongst the observers. However, more in vivo studies with natural recurrent caries should be conducted to overcome the limitations of artificially created recurrent caries and observers’ bias. In addition, when using CBCT scans, limitations such as the increased

WITHDRAWN: Pulp management for caries in adults: maintaining pulp vitality. There is a range of treatment options for the management of the pulp in extensively decayed teeth. These include direct and indirect pulp capping, pulpotomy or pulpectomy. If the tooth is symptomatic or if there are periapical bone changes, then endodontic treatment is required. However, if the tooth is asymptomatic but the caries is extensive, there is no consensus as to the best method of management. In addition (...) (1981 to March 2006). Detailed search strategies were developed for each database. Handsearching and screening of reference lists were undertaken.

71. WITHDRAWN: Dental fillings for the treatment of caries in the primary dentition. (PubMed)

WITHDRAWN: Dental fillings for the treatment of caries in the primary dentition. Childhood caries (tooth decay) consists of a form of tooth decay that affects the milk teeth (also known as baby or primary teeth) of children. This may range from tooth decay in a single tooth to rampant caries affecting all the teeth in the mouth. Primary teeth in young children are vital to their development and every effort should be made to retain these teeth for as long as is possible. Dental fillings (...) or restorations have been used as an intervention to repair these damaged teeth. Oral health professionals need to make astute decisions about the type of restorative (filling) material they choose to best manage their patients with childhood caries. This decision is by no means an easy one as remarkable advances in dental restorative materials over the last 10 years has seen the introduction of a multitude of different filling materials claiming to provide the best performance in terms of durability

Lasers for caries removal in deciduous and permanent teeth. Despite considerable improvements in oral health, dental caries continue to be a public health issue. The most frequently used, and universally accepted technique, to remove caries is through mechanical ablation of decayed tissues by means of rotating drills (diamond or tungsten carbide, or both).

Fluoride mouthrinses for preventing dental caries in children and adolescents. Fluoride mouthrinses have been used extensively as a caries-preventive intervention in school-based programmes and by individuals at home.

A systematic review on the association between molar incisor hypomineralization and dental caries. Molar incisor hypomineralization (MIH) is a defect of enamel. The lower strength of the enamel can lead to fractures that predispose for plaque accumulation and caries.This systematic review aimed to assess the association between MIH and caries.Studies involving children of all ages, which reported results on MIH and caries in the permanent dentition, were considered eligible. A search (...) was performed in PubMed and was limited to the period from January 2003 to November 2015, and to studies written in English. Reviews, meta-analyses, and case reports were excluded. The studies were evaluated by use of the Newcastle-Ottawa Quality Assessment Scale (NOS).Seventeen publications were compiled in the review. Most publications reported that children with MIH have higher caries experience. One study did not observe a difference in DMF values among children affected or not by MIH. Three studies

Clinical Bottom Line Deamination of arginine, a semi-essential amino acid, by some oral bacteria results in ammonia production that leads to an alkaline oral environment, thus reducing the cariogenicity of oral biofilms. This effect is possibly the reason for current observation that dentifrice combining arginine (1.5%) and fluoride (1450 ppm) is more effective than 1450 ppm fluoride only dentifrice
