This review of micro-invasive treatments for proximal caries included 13 split-mouth RCTs. There was moderate quality evidence to support sealing in infiltration of early proximal caries compared with non-invasive treatments such as diet and bio-film management and topical fluorides.[read the full story...]

4 different vital pulp treatments for deep caries management of mature permanent molars were tested in this stud .The findings suggest that these techniques could be used but other approaches are available.[read the full story...]
This review of the effectiveness of Caries Risk Assessment (CRA) models included 32 studies providing limited evidence that CRA is effective for caries assessment and prediction.[read the full story...]
This review of the incidence and increment of root caries included 20 longitudinal studies that provided an overall estimate of incidence of 18.25% 1(95%CI; 13.22%-23–28%) and increment of 0.45 (95%CI; 0.37–0.53).[read the full story...]
Four RCTs were included in this review of silver diamine fluoride (SDF) for the prevention of caries in primary teeth. Meta-analysis involving 2 of the studies suggest a preventive fraction = 77.5% (95%CI; 67.8– 87.2%)[read the full story...]
Three RCTs were included in this review of the association between personal oral hygiene and coronal dental caries. The findings suggest that in the absence of fluorides personal oral hygiene did not reduce the incidence of caries.[read the full story...]
Opportunity to participate in an eDelphi survey to identify core outcomes when assessing the effects of treatment interventions for managing carious lesions.[read the full story...]
This Cochrane review of pulp treatments for primary teeth included 87 trials. Pulp treatments were generally successful with many trials having no clinical or radiological failure in either arm.
Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) may be the best medicament to apply after pulpotomy. For pulpectomy there was no conclusive evidence that one medicament or technique is superior to another.
This review of the effectiveness of chemomechanical caries removal in primary teeth identified 15 studies with 10 contributing to the quantitative analysis. The findings suggest this approach is less painful but takes longer than traditional approaches.[read the full story...]
This review of composite resin or glass ionomer cement for Class II restorations in primary molars included 10 RCTSs finding similar clinical performance.[read the full story...]
