Caries prevention update 2019. Prof Walsh

This lecture provides a "booster injection" on the most modern concepts of caries prevention and how they are applied at the individual level.

The first part of the lecture explores the keystone pathogen and ecological catastrophe concepts and how they apply to dental caries, then examines modern ways to protect teeth, alter the oral microflora, and use prebiotic approaches. The second part of the lecture looks at assessing caries risk and tracking it over time in the individual patient, and explores the way that caries prevention strategies alter when moving from enamel to roots as the site which is at risk.
