5. WITHDRAWN: Operative caries management in adults and children. (Abstract)

WITHDRAWN: Operative caries management in adults and children. The management of dental caries has traditionally involved removal of all soft demineralised dentine before a filling is placed. However, the benefits of complete caries removal have been questioned because of concerns about the possible adverse effects of removing all soft dentine from the tooth. Three groups of studies have also challenged the doctrine of complete caries removal by sealing caries into teeth using three different (...) techniques. The first technique removes caries in stages over two visits some months apart, allowing the dental pulp time to lay down reparative dentine (the stepwise excavation technique). The second removes part of the dentinal caries and seals the residual caries into the tooth permanently (partial caries removal) and the third technique removes no dentinal caries prior to sealing or restoring (no dentinal caries removal). This is an update of a Cochrane review first published in 2006.To assess

Effective oral hygiene is a crucial factor in maintaining good oral health, which is associated with overall health and health-related quality of life.

WITHDRAWN: Flossing for the management of periodontal diseases and dental caries in adults. Good oral hygiene is thought to be important for oral health. This review is to determine the effectiveness of flossing in addition to toothbrushing for preventing gum disease and dental caries in adults.To assess the effects of flossing in addition to toothbrushing, as compared with toothbrushing alone, in the management of periodontal diseases and dental caries in adults.We searched the following (...) evidence from twelve studies that flossing in addition to toothbrushing reduces gingivitis compared to toothbrushing alone. There is weak, very unreliable evidence from 10 studies that flossing plus toothbrushing may be associated with a small reduction in plaque at 1 and 3 months. No studies reported the effectiveness of flossing plus toothbrushing for preventing dental caries.

9. Assessment of the application of fluoride varnish on milk teeth to prevent the development and progression of initial caries or new carious lesions - rapid report

. Conclusion For the outcome “caries”, in children with and without (initial) carious lesions of the milk teeth, the data provide an indication of a greater benefit for the application of fluoride varnish versus usual care without specific fluoridation measures. For further patient-relevant outcomes (in particular premature tooth loss, toothache, and [serious] adverse events), no hint of a greater benefit or greater harm could be inferred from the data available. In addition, no relevant effect (...) modification could be inferred, in particular by the following potential factors: age and sex, oral health, frequency of application and concentration of fluoride varnish, additional prevention measures potentially offered, and social-economical setting.

10. Fluoride toothpastes of different concentrations for preventing dental caries. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Fluoride toothpastes of different concentrations for preventing dental caries. Caries (dental decay) is a disease of the hard tissues of the teeth caused by an imbalance, over time, in the interactions between cariogenic bacteria in dental plaque and fermentable carbohydrates (mainly sugars). Regular toothbrushing with fluoride toothpaste is the principal non-professional intervention to prevent caries, but the caries-preventive effect varies according to different concentrations of fluoride (...) in toothpaste, with higher concentrations associated with increased caries control. Toothpastes with higher fluoride concentration increases the risk of fluorosis (enamel defects) in developing teeth. This is an update of the Cochrane Review first published in 2010.To determine and compare the effects of toothpastes of different fluoride concentrations (parts per million (ppm)) in preventing dental caries in children, adolescents, and adults.Cochrane Oral Health's Information Specialist searched

11. WITHDRAWN: Ozone therapy for the treatment of dental caries. Full Text available with Trip Pro

WITHDRAWN: Ozone therapy for the treatment of dental caries. Dental caries is a bacterially mediated disease characterised by demineralisation of the tooth surface, which may lead to cavitation, discomfort, pain and eventual tooth loss. Ozone is toxic to certain bacteria in vitro and it has been suggested that delivering ozone into a carious lesion might reduce the number of cariogenic bacteria. This possibly could arrest the progress of the lesion and may, in the presence of fluoride, perhaps (...) and lack of consistency between different outcome measures, there is no reliable evidence that application of ozone gas to the surface of decayed teeth stops or reverses the decay process. There is a fundamental need for more evidence of appropriate rigour and quality before the use of ozone can be accepted into mainstream primary dental care or can be considered a viable alternative to current methods for the management and treatment of dental caries.

This was from pooled analysis of 35 trials in permanent tooth surfaces, which had broadly consistent findings. Looking at permanent teeth, fluoride mouthrinse significantly reduced the number of decayed, missing, and filled teeth (rather than surfaces) by 23% (95% CI 0.18 to 0.29).
