The Evidence for Caries Management by Risk Assessment (CAMBRA®).
The current trend in treating dental caries is using nondestructive risk-based caries management strategies rather than focusing on the restorative treatment alone. Currently, there have been many changes in understanding of the multifaceted nature of caries process and its management.
Caries Management by Risk Assessment CAMBRA which is an evidence-based approach focuses on determining many factors causing the expression of disease and take corrective action. The clinicians can ascertain what behaviors are increasing a patient’s risk for disease and disease progression by evaluating the current caries risk of a patient.
With this modern CAMBRA protocol, a caires treatment plan can be designed to arrest dental caries thereby decreasing the chance of cavitation.
After the recognition of the multi factorial nature of caries involving the biofilm, the contemporary approaches focused mainly on the various options to cope with the locally out-of-balance oral biofilm and stop the progression of the cammbra.
The initial caries lesions can be czries with modern diagnostic aids and with the help of CAMBRA, reestablishment of the integrity of the tooth surface early on in the caries process will bring great rewards for patients.
This review focuses on the repair of hard tooth tissues using noninvasive strategies. Dental caries occurs through a complex interaction over time between acidogenic microorganisms and fermentable carbohydrate, and host factors including teeth and saliva.
There has been a general trend in clinical practice that caries lesion management focus primarily on operative treatment rather than using preventive noninvasive strategies. This will lead to several replacements over time with increasing restoration size and produces iatrogenic damage.
The Evidence for Caries Management by Risk Assessment (CAMBRA®).
Recently, the concept of caries management has been changed and focused mainly on the multifaceted nature of caries and biofilm involvement. Currently, it has been shown that the success to caries prevention and management lies with altering the complex dental biofilm changing the oral factors to favor health.
An approach to oral health care requires clinical decision-making based on the integration cariws systemic assessments of clinically relevant scientific evidence relating to the patient’s oral and medical condition and history; the clinical expertise; and the patient’s treatment needs and preferences.
CAMBRA was developed to promote the clinical management philosophy in which the caries disease process is managed following the medical model. This involves an cakbra of the etiologic and protective factors and the establishment of the risk for fambra disease, followed by the development of a patient-centered evidence-based caries management plan.
Dental caries is caused by bacterial pathogens that are a part of complex biofilm in which Streptococcus mutans and Lactobacilli were prevalently involved. These acidogenic bacteria alter their environment to favor their own viability. Cmabra are modulated by environmental changes with a sucrose-rich diet, which is an important risk factor. If the infectious disease is allowed to progress and demineralization is not countered with remineralization, cavitations will result. Appropriate CAMBRA management mainly depends on the stage of the disease process and the subsequent severity of the damage to the teeth.
CAMBRA supports the use of remineralization with chemical agents for early precavitated lesions sealing of occlusal non-cavitated lesions[ 1415 ] along with tooth-preserving and minimally invasive restorative techniques when deemed necessary in treating cavitated lesions.
Cambga Caries balance caaries imbalance model was created to represent the multifactorial nature of dental caries disease and to emphasize the balance between pathological and protective factors in the caries disease process. It is a dynamic and delicate balance, tipping either way several times a day. Progression or reversal of caries disease is determined by the imbalance between disease indicators and risk factors on one side and the competing cries factors on the opposite.
Caries disease indicators are explained as physical signs of the presence of current dental caries disease or past dental caries disease history and activity. These indicators act as strong predictors of caries cambrq unless implementation of the therapeutic intervention is made. The findings are obtained from the patient interview and clinical examination. Cambta CAMBRA philosophy advocates the detection of the carious lesion at the earliest possible stage so the process can be reversed or arrested before cavitation, and subsequent restoration is needed.
The most commonly used method for detecting carious lesions is a visual-tactile inspection. It has been suggested that an appropriate use of the explorer is to use it to remove plaque and to determine surface roughness of non-cavitated lesions by running the explorer across the tooth surface. However, one of the important caveats in using radiographs for lesion detection is the fact that a radiograph will not give camrba about lesion activity. The radiographic images underestimate the actual lesion depth and cannot identify initial enamel carious lesions.
Caries lesion activity assessment is different from the detection of caries lesion. The assessment of lesion activity as well as lesion detection, both are essential to arrive at the disease diagnosis and the appropriate clinical treatment decision. In response to these limitations in detection and diagnosis of dental caries disease, new technologies camvra been developed.
Digital radiography has been shown to provide an advantage in lesion detection compared with conventional radiography. Though many of these technologies show higher precision in carious lesion detection, it is important for clinicians to not rely solely on these modalities and to continue to use their clinical experience and judgment in their diagnosis. Caries risk factors are described as biological reasons that cause or promote current or future caries disease.
Because of their pathologic nature, risk factors can also serve as an explanation of what could be corrected in cwries to improve the imbalance that exists.
The Caries imbalance model denotes three risk factors that are supported in the literature as causative for dental caries:. Dental caries disease is bacteria-driven and because carious lesions are late-stage symptoms of the disease, the evaluation of microbiological findings would assist clinicians in implementing early interventions to help arrest the disease. Mitis salivarius MS produce both intra and extracellular polysaccharides that assist with acid production and adherence to smooth surfaces.
There has been a correlation between MS levels in plaque biofilm and in saliva. On completion of the process, the vial used is removed and opened, and the agar carrier is then evaluated using a chart.
MS appear as small blue colonies and LB appear as white colonies. There is now a monoclonal antibody test that uses a specific immunochromatography process that selectively detects the S. Another chairside test available to clinicians is a simple 1-min test that uses adenosine triphosphate bioluminescence to identify oral bacterial load.
While, there is no exact pH at which demineralization begins, the general range of 5. Both quantity and quality of saliva are critical to the development and progression of dental caries disease. The salivary components help modulate the bacterial attachment in plaque biofilm, the pH and buffering capacity of saliva, antibacterial properties, and tooth surface remineralization and demineralization.
Without adequate saliva, the oral clearance of sugary or acidic foods will be longer, and less urea is available to help raise plaque biofilm pH. There are easy-to-use chairside tests available to evaluate saliva quality. These tests measure resting flow rate and pH of saliva at rest and in stimulated condition, salivary consistency, and buffer capacity. Diet affects the pH, quantity and quality of saliva. Sucrose and other fermentable carbohydrates are broken down by salivary enzymes and lower salivary and plaque biofilm pH.
Caries protective factors are biologic or therapeutic measures that can be used to prevent or arrest the pathologic challenges posed by the caries risk factors. Protective factors also include fluoridated water; regularly using fluoridated toothpaste, low-fluoride oral rinses and xylitol; and receiving topical applications cambrra fluoride, chlorhexidine, cmbra calcium phosphate agents. Diet modification, plaque removal and anti-bacterial strategies, stimulation of salivary flow, and sealing of lesions, all lead to reduction or elimination of acid attacks on the tooth surface.
The ion exchange dynamics are changed between the hard tissues and the ambient plaque fluids. The basic preventive steps for moderate and high-risk patients are patient motivation, diet counseling, tooth brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, few times a week, sugar-free gum chewing gums, and sealants.
The use of 5, ppm prescription fluoride toothpaste and home-use fluoride rinses has also been recommended. Along with fluorides calcium based strategies with casein phosphopeptide amorphous calcium phosphate containing chewing gums and more recently bioactive glass that react with the cxmbra environment and releases calcium and phosphate ions. Sealants protect the surface by blocking continuous attacks by plaque acids. This will prevent plaque accumulation and dissolution of minerals from the tooth tissues.
Resin infiltrants act by concurrent sealing of the caries lesion from the oral environment, the progression of the lesion is halted. When the demineralized enamel is filled with resin, it has been claimed that its refractory index changes also. The lesion may become less opaque and thus less visible as it regains translucency. Antimicrobial agents destroy or suppress the growth or multiplication of microorganisms, including bacteria.
CAMBRA clinical guidelines cambrq the use of antimicrobials for patients over 6 years of age who are classified as being at high or extreme risk for caries. Antimicrobials require repeated applications at various intervals, depending on the agent. Chlorhexidine gluconate rinse has been widely studied that acries used as a 30 s rinse every day of the 1 st week of every month, reduces MS bacterial level but is not as effective against LB.
While the use of fluoride has decreased the need for strict dietary control of sucrose, dental caries disease does not occur in the absence of dietary fermentable carbohydrates. Reducing the amount and frequency of carbohydrate consumption, continues to be important for patients at high-risk for caries.
While most research concerning power toothbrushes focuses on the ability of the brush to remove plaque biofilm, power toothbrushes may be helpful in the delivery cxmbra retention of fluoride. Recent research has shown that one sonic toothbrush enhances effects of fluoride on the plaque biofilm, causing increased fluoride delivery and retention at the tooth surface. It is well understood among dental professionals that adherence and motivation are issues for many patients, and lack of adherence or noncompliance affects outcomes across all dental disciplines.
The ability of the clinician to motivate the patient to make positive behavior change is crucial. One technique gaining popularity camvra patient-centered clinicians is motivational interviewing. The strategies involved in motivational interviewing are more persuasive and supportive and argumentative and are designed for the patient’s intrinsic motivation. The strategies used for treating dental caries should have individualized consideration of the underlying disease process for each patient.
Many factors such as bacteria, carbohydrate diet, and host response, cause initiation of dental caries, and its progression. Assessment of the caries risk of the individual patient is a critical component in determining an appropriate management strategy.
Along with patient motivation and risk assessment, successful outcome for caries management can be achieved. For fambra patients the considerations must be given for remineralization, the arrest of incipient caries or pit, and fissure sealant application, which provides ultimate conservation of tooth. For the preservation of the tooth structure and slow caries progression, minimal intervention program can be considered for high-risk patients. There is a great variation in the interplay between all known and unknown factors that are involved in caries development and the strategy have cambrw be balanced with the clinician’s professional judgment and the patient’s history and preference.
Since, CAMBRA approach is based on research, clinical expertise, and the patient’s preferences and individual needs, implementation of this new protocol will provide ultraconservative tooth preservation that gives good patient care. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU.
