21. Home use of interdental cleaning devices, in addition to toothbrushing, for preventing and controlling periodontal diseases and dental caries. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Home use of interdental cleaning devices, in addition to toothbrushing, for preventing and controlling periodontal diseases and dental caries. Dental caries (tooth decay) and periodontal diseases (gingivitis and periodontitis) affect the majority of people worldwide, and treatment costs place a significant burden on health services. Decay and gum disease can cause pain, eating and speaking difficulties, low self-esteem, and even tooth loss and the need for surgery. As dental plaque (...) periodontal diseases, caries, and plaque.

22. 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.

23. Preventive Effects of Fluoride Gel Application on Dental Caries in the Permanent Tooth: A Systematic Review of Randomized Controlled Trials Full Text available with Trip Pro

applied topical fluoride gels on the decayed, missing, and filled permanent teeth (D(M)FT) and decayed, missing, and filled permanent tooth surface (D(M)FS) indices were included. Studies were selected regardless of the severity of dental caries at the start of the study, the level of dental treatment, and ethnicity. Only those studies including subjects free of any systemic diseases were selected. 2. Search strategy To select eligible RCTs, we used keywords from the main questions in PICO to search (...) the results of previous studies, which showed that prophylaxis did not enhance the effects of fluoride application. On the basis of our findings, fluoride application should be recommended as a preventive treatment for tooth decay in children and adolescents. The effects of topical fluoride application on other conditions such as hyperesthesia, cervical abrasion in adults or the elderly, and dental root caries should be determined in future systematic reviews designed to provide highly reliable evidence

24. 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.

26. Caries-risk Assessment and Management for Infants, Children, and Adolescents

as clinical experience of practitioners. Care pathways for caries management in children aged 0-2 and 3-5 years old were first introduced in 2011. 18 Care pathways are updated frequently as new technologies and evidence develop. Historically, the management of dental caries was based on the notion that it was a progressive disease that eventually destroyed the tooth unless there was surgical/restorative inter- vention. Decisions for intervention often were learned from unstandardized dental school (...) instruction and then refined by clinicians over years of practice. It is now known that surgical intervention of dental caries alone does not stop the disease process. Additionally, many lesions do not progress, and tooth restorations have a finite longevity. Therefore, modern management of dental caries should be more conservative and includes early detection of non-cavitated lesions, identification of an individual’s risk for caries progression, understanding of the disease process for that individual
