“An Update on Current Recommendations for Non-Restorative
Management of Caries Lesions, With a Focus on Silver Diamine Fluoride.”
Presented By: Margherita Fontana, DDS, PhD
Caries management involves not only prevention and management of the disease process at the individual level, but once caries
lesions develop, additional site-specific strategies at the lesion/surface level. Effective strategies exist to arrest caries lesions of
different severity. The objective of this presentation is to provide an overview of current evidence for non-restorative management
of caries lesions, including strategies to arrest cavitated lesions such as silver diamine fluoride.
