Caries Disease: Can It Be Treated or Controlled?

The clinical failure rate of posterior composites is nearly twice that of amalgam restorations, with secondary caries as the principal cause. It is now well accepted that restoring carious lesions does not affect caries disease incidence. The panel will review the current status of caries management as a chronic disease and the relative effectiveness of current restorative materials, before previewing a next-generation antimicrobial technology with the potential to change the prognosis for restorations, thus affecting disease outcomes.

Presentation 1: “Caries Balance and the Management of Biofilm for Effective Caries Treatment.”
Presenter: John Featherstone, PhD, MSc, Professor Emeritus and Dean Emeritus, UCSF School of Dentistry

Presentation 2: “Do Current Materials (GIs, SDF, ‘bioactives,’ antimicrobial desensitizers, calcium-release therapies) do Enough? What actually constitutes a ‘preventive’ restoration?”
Presenter: Brian Gray, DDS

Presentation 3: “Can Minimally Invasive Restoratives Truly Replace Amalgam, with the Help of New Non-leaching Antimicrobial Technologies? What impact Would that Have on Clinical Dentistry?”
Presenter: John Flucke, DDS

Learning Objectives

  • Re-orient the clinician’s perspective of caries management and cariology. In certain individuals, why is it still rampant?
  • Examine the benefits, limitations, and drawbacks of glass Ionomers, SDF, “bioactive” and other materials in the current caries armamentarium
  • Discover how next-generation materials that contain non-leaching antimicrobial technology may improve the outcome of posterior restorations
