Depriving cariogenic bacteria of sugar is the cornerstone of traditional caries management, yet the science of CAMBRA (Caries Management By Risk Assessment) takes cariology to a whole new level. If you’re still telling patients to “brush, floss, and use fluoride toothpaste,” you’re going to be surprised by the myriad of treatment options available today. Streptococcus mutans has more to fear than stronger fluoride and more of it, as dentistry embraces oral healthcare.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Implement disease management in practice.
  • Improve the prognosis of restorative treatment.
  • Minimize the dangers of consuming sugar-sweetened foods and beverages.
