Traitement global d'un adulte à haut risque carieux

Abstract : The carious lesion is a bacterial, non-transmissible disease whose etiology is multifactorial. This is closely related to the bacterial composition of the overlying dental plaque and the consumption of fermentable sugars. The carious lesion is characterized by the formation of a cavity leading to the destruction of the enamel and dentin. Many aggravating factors increase the risk of developing tooth decay such as certain behaviors, oral hygiene or even dental anatomy. The carious lesions must be diagnosed as quickly as possible, in order to preserve the dental organ as much as possible. The carious clinical examination involves a classic examination combining visual examination and intra-oral radiography. Many diagnostic tools have been validated including systems using the concept of fluorescence. This method makes it possible to diagnose the lesions earlier and adapt the treatment accordingly. The management of a patient with a high risk of decay involves the use of specific bioactive materials and combinations of restorative techniques that reduce dental decay and if possible promote the remineralization of enamel tissue during the stabilization phases.
