1

CAMBRA

Caries management by risk assessment

2

Fermentable carbohydrates

Simple carbs sucrose fructose lactose and glucose

3

Incipient

Tooth decay that is beginning to become apparent

4

Pellicle

Thin film coating of salivary materials deposited on tooth surfaces

5

Plaque

Soft deposit on teeth that consist of bacteria and bacterial by-products

6

Xerostomia

Dryness of the mouth caused by reduction of saliva

7

What does saliva provide

Physical chemical and antibacterial protective measures

12

What is used to diagnose caries

Explorer, radiographs, visual appearance, indicator dyes

13

What is used to detect caries

Laser

14

Demineralization and remineralization steps

1.tooth attacked by acids in plaque and saliva 2. Calcium n phosphate dissolve from enamel in the process of demineralization 3. Fluoride, phosphate, and Alcuin re-enter the enamel by remineralization

15

What mineral in enamel makes crystal easier to dissolve

Carbonated apatite
