Lecture
Contemporary Treatment of Caries Lesions: From ‘Drill and Fill’ to Prevention and Management
Terms recommended by the International Caries Consensus Collaboration for describing the approaches and end-points of carious tissue removal will be presented. The end-points are related to the clinical manifestations of the carious lesion, including soft, leathery, firm, and hard dentine. The approaches are: 1) selective removal of carious tissue to soft dentine or firm dentine; 2) stepwise removal - including stage 1, selective removal to soft dentine, and stage 2, selective removal to firm dentine later; and 3) nonselective removal to hard dentine. Adoption of these terms will facilitate mutual understanding and communication among dental researchers, educators and clinicians.

Learning Objective :
  1. The contemporary terms used in describing the procedures and end-points of carious tissue removal; the different approaches for removing carious tissues
  2. The rationale behind the choice of using different approaches for removing carious tissues
