Flashcards in Lec 4 - Cambra / Pits and Fissures Deck (22):
1

cambra stands for

caries management by risk assessment

2

treatment goal in caries management

prevent new lesions from forming, detect lesions early

3

main components on minimally invasive dentistry

-assess disease risk
-external/internal remineralization
-use of other restorations
-use of surgical intervention only when required and after disease has been controlled

4

pit and fissure lesions occur in blank coalesces

enamel

5

over a specified time period, there is a net mineral loss

active caries lesion

6

a lesion not undergoing mineral loss nor progressing

arrested caries lesion

7

surface of enamel is whitish yellowish or opaque and chalky

active caries lesion

8

active caries lesion feel blank and is in a blank area

rough, plaque stagnation

9

three plaque stagnation areas

pits/fissures, near the gingiva, below proximal contact

10

arrested caries lesions are usually this color and shiny

white, brown, black

11

arrested lesions feel blank

hard/smooth

12

arrested lesions location

distant from gingival margin

13

non cavitated lesions should not be blank

restored or opened

14

two types of teeth that should be sealed

at risk teeth, teeth with cavitated lesions

15

interventions provided to avert the onset of caries

primary prevention

16

interventions to avert the progression of early caries to cavitation

secondary prevetention

17

blank sealants are currently more effective than blank

resin, glass ionomer

18

two types of sealants that are traditionally used

flowable composites, resin

19

one problem with flowable composite

shadows on teeth form which could confuse another dentist for a lesion

20

what is better about flowable composites

better wear resistance than resin

21

why do older people have aggressively restored amalgam restorations

gv black came up with extension for prevention to fill in entire groove pattern to prevent more caries from forming

22

how we treat a lesion on a tooth

drill to remove lesion, fill in remaining groove pattern with sealant
