  • Title
    • Non-invasive treatment approaches for dental caries in children:
  • Summary
    • Dental caries is a non-communicable sugar-dependent biofilm-driven disease. Altought it is a preventable disease, dental caries in the primary dentition is still a major oral health problem in Ireland and is the main reason of referal to specialist care. Recently, the paradigm around caries management has moved from a tooth-centred invasive treatment (drill and fill) into a patient-centred non-invasive approach with a focus on behaviour change. Non-invasive methods for caries prevention and control do not require any removal of carious tooth tissue (no drilling) and local anaesthesia (no injections). The treatments in this approach depend on the stage of the caries proccess (initial, moderate and severe caries lesions) and include oral hygiene instruction, dietary advice, use of fluoridated products (toothpaste, mouthwash, fluoride varnish, silver diamine fluoride), glass ionomer fissure sealants and placement of stainless steel crowns using Hall technique. The objective of the present study is to provide additional evidence and support decision-making by clinicians and policymakers regarding the use of non-invasive approaches for treating caries lesions in children according to the lesion extension. For that, four interconnected clinical trials were designed.
