🌐Spotlight on IAPD Consensus Recommendations

This month, we’re shining a spotlight on the Consensus Recommendation on Caries Risk Assessment and Care Pathways. The primary aim of caries risk assessment is to provide preventive and restorative dental care tailored to the specific needs of each patient. Dental caries care pathways are designed based on an understanding of risk factors as they apply to individual children. For children at high risk of caries, intensive preventive measures are crucial to prevent the onset of caries and to halt their progression. Conversely, advanced preventive therapies are deemed to have minimal benefit for children who are at low risk of dental caries.

By focusing on these recommendations and understanding the critical and additional risk factors for dental caries, dental professionals can provide more effective and personalised care. This tailored approach not only enhances the immediate dental health of children but also promotes long-term oral health and wellbeing.
