Spotlight on IAPD Consensus Recommendations

This month we are highlighting the IAPD Consensus Recommendation on Minimal Invasive Dentistry. Minimal invasive dentistry focuses on caries arrest procedures rather than surgical intervention. The strategies for minimal invasive dentistry include: early caries detection and caries risk assessment, remineralization of demineralized enamel and dentin, optimal caries preventive measures, minimally invasive surgical interventions, and repair rather than replacement of restorations. Let's pause for a moment to draw attention to the second recommendation based on evidence in the document (you can read the complete IAPD Recommendation here): The application of silver diamine fluoride (SDF) has proven effective in stopping the progression of decay in cavitated caries lesions. The British Society of Paediatric Dentistry (BSPD), which is one of the 78 national member societies of the IAPD, has produced an excellent video on this topic, featuring the perspectives of the children whom we treat - the most significant source of information.
