The incidence of dental caries is increasing globally. It is essential that the dental team work together with the patient to manage dental caries throughout the various stages of the patient’s life.

The utilization of a risk assessment can assist the dental professional in addressing the disease process and recommended treatment with the patient. It is advantageous to utilize a completed risk assessment, along with various caries identification methods, to help guide the patient and dental team in the management of early carious lesions. The use of minimal intervention dentistry to address early carious lesions is an integral part of the caries management process and should be considered when devising a caries management plan.
