Development and control of caries lesions on the occlusal surface using a new in vivo caries model

Abstract: The aim of this study was to develop a new in vivo caries model for the occlusal surface and to describe the enamel features observed before and after dental plaque control (DPC). Four volunteers (12-15 years old) participated in the experiment, each of which was due to have 2 homologous first premolars extracted for orthodontic reasons. Test surfaces did not present visible signs of demineralization, opacities or fillings. A wire mesh was used to promote dental plaque accumulation on the occlusal surface. Aft… Show more

“…In vivo models have been previously tested for caries development [26,27] but, to our knowledge, this is the first study to use this model to investigate the biological shift during both process of enamel caries lesion progression and arrest (by including brushing), combining bacterial microbiome, metabolome, and enamel structure analyses. The design of the study was also planned to mimic the most realistic scenario.…”

“…Caries lesions initiation, progression and arrest on the premolars were induced for a maximum of eight weeks using modified orthodontic bands, i.e. with a gap on the smooth (buccal) surface, and a mesh on the occlusal surface to enable biofilm accumulation, as previously described [25][26][27] (Figures 1A and 1B). The teeth were extracted according to a timeline that allowed either four or six weeks of undisturbed biofilm accumulation for enamel caries lesion progression followed by a two-week mitigation period (via toothbrushing with fluoridated toothpaste) for caries lesion arrest.…”

“…However, for the assessment of the clinical activity status of occlusal surfaces, current concepts seem to be applied only to a certain extent. Improvement in this assessment is warranted as caries lesion activity is essential for diagnosis and subsequent treatment decisions in daily practice [Paim et al, 2003;Carvalho et al, 2016]. The general rule for any treatment decision related to caries activity is that in case of doubt, the lesion should be reassessed in short intervals.…”

“…At the 2-y follow-up, we found that regular toothbrushing with fluoride toothpaste 1.100 ppm F – diminished the risk of developing caries lesions in sound surfaces. Per se, the mechanical disturbance of the occlusal biofilm carried out on a regular basis was shown, in experimental clinical studies, to either maintain the caries process at subclinical levels or inactivate the process at a clinical level (Holmen et al 1988; Thylstrup et al 1994; Paim et al 2003). The combination of mechanical biofilm control and fluoride toothpaste is considered significant for management of the caries process in terms of reducing tooth mineral loss and enhancing remineralization.…”
