The following links below are notable publication in the field of dental caries research. ICDA.org is not the author of these publications and is simply referencing them so that others may have a helpful guide to the ones we find relevant and grround breaking.
Dental caries, also known as tooth decay or cavities, is a widespread oral health problem that affects people of all ages. It is caused by a complex interaction between bacteria, diet, and other factors, and can lead to pain, infection, and tooth loss if left untreated. Fortunately, there is a great deal of ongoing research aimed at better understanding the causes of dental caries and developing new strategies for prevention and treatment. Here are a few important publications related to dental caries research:
“The Oral Microbiome and Dental Caries in Children” – This 2018 article in the Journal of Dental Research discusses the role of the oral microbiome in the development of dental caries in children.
“Dental Caries: A Disease Which Needs Attention” – This 2019 editorial in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health highlights the global burden of dental caries and the need for effective prevention and treatment strategies.
“Dental Caries Vaccine: A Dream or a Reality?” – This 2020 review article in Vaccines discusses the current state of research on dental caries vaccines and the potential for their development in the future.
“Caries Risk Assessment and Management for Infants, Children, and Adolescents” – This 2021 clinical practice guideline from the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry provides evidence-based recommendations for the assessment and management of dental caries risk in young patients.
“Treatment of Carious Lesions: A Systematic Review and Network Meta-analysis” – This 2022 study in JAMA Network Open compares the effectiveness of various treatments for dental caries, including drilling and filling, sealing, and remineralization.
These publications represent just a small sample of the vast amount of research being conducted on dental caries. By continuing to study this important oral health issue, researchers are making progress towards better prevention, early detection, and effective treatment of dental caries.
