Risk Management for Pediatric Caries

New Strategies for a New Era

Early childhood caries is the most common chronic childhood disease, more common than asthma or ear infections.  Millions of school days and parents’ work days are lost worldwide every year due to poor oral health in children.   Early assessment, ideally by age one, and early intervention are the best strategies for providing good oral health for young children.  This approach will also set them on the path for good lifelong oral health as adults.  Clinical studies have indicated that a variety of risk factors exist for pediatric caries. This presentation will discuss risk assessment and the newest concepts in managing those risk factors for caries prevention.  Several strategies will be presented with an emphasis on those techniques and materials that are both effective and feasible.  Management of incipient lesions will also be discussed with a focus on minimally invasive care.

Participants will learn:

  • Understand the role of caries risk assessment
  • Evaluate the evidence for caries risk management 
  • Apply caries management strategies in children
