Improving Patient Awareness

For Optimal Caries Detection and Treatment

Learning Objectives:

After hearing this audio clip, the listener should:

  • Understand the importance of discussing dental caries risk with patients
  • Know some additional treatment methods and strategies for high-risk caries patients

It goes without saying that dental students and clinicians alike should instruct their patients on the importance of maintaining a proper oral healthcare regimen, as well as keeping regular dental appointments for cleanings. Dental caries remains one of the most common diseases experienced by patients throughout the world. Although patients may not experience pain or view any difference in their own dentition, caries may still be present. It is, therefore, important for you to effectively communicate to your current clinic patients and future patients in your practice the impact of regular professional cleanings and checkups to ensure that any dental caries are detected early on.
