Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Risk-based, patient-centred decision-making, supported by best available evidence is an essential component for the correct prevention, control and management of dental caries. This article reviews the importance of caries risk assessment in adults as a prerequisite for appropriate caries preventive and treatment intervention decisions. A clinical case will be used to demonstrate how risk assessment can be easily incorporated in everyday clinical practice, using information readily available in the dental-medical history and clinical examination.
