Dental caries: Premature treat prevent Drilling

Many people are afraid of visiting the dentist, because this could pull out the drill. Australian researchers, however, have a "No Drill"-Care technology, developed with the fillings, in many cases, avoid &ndash let; assuming that the patients with work.

Results from seven years show that the traditional approach of Drilling and Filling is often not necessary: Wendell Evans and his Team from the University of Sydney were able to reduce the decline of carious teeth in patients by 30 to 50 percent, as they report in the journal Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology.

The researchers had developed a number of protocols, which they refer to as a Caries Management System (CMS). By assessing the risk of Caries, x-rays and a special Monitoring were detected at the end of the caries lesions, which had caused no cavities, very early and with a highly concentrated fluoride varnish treated, instead of with a non-invasive means. So that you could prevent dental caries, stop, or even reverse, before the drill came into play. For the success of the treatment, the patients had to contribute, however, by limiting your dental care at home-optimized and the consumption of sugar-containing between-meals snacks and drinks.

While it protects, typically, a carious Tooth from further decay, by removing the lesions immediately and the hole fills up, took advantage of Evans, the fact that the expiry runs less quickly than feared: "It takes an average of four to eight years, until dental caries is advanced from the outer layer of the tooth to the inner layer. This is enough time to detect and treat them before a cavity is formed and a filling is required."
