Results after two years of non-operative treatment of occlusal surface in children with high caries prevalence

Abstract: The aim of this study was to describe the 2-year results of an individualized treatment program designed to control occlusal caries in erupting first permanent molars. The sample consisted of 145 five-to-six-year-old students divided into a control group (n=71) and a test group (n=74). All test children received a biannual basic preventive program and a recall system according to individual disease activity. The basic program consisted of 3 (March) and 2 (August) sessions of oral hygiene orientation and toothb… Show more

“…Dirks [1966], who studied buccal surfaces of first permanent molars, observed the arrestment and/or regression of the lesions as a result of changes in the oral environment during tooth eruption. Similar findings were observed on occlusal surfaces [Carvalho et al, 1991[Carvalho et al, , 1992Maltz et al, 2003].…”

“…However, in the present study, 145 permanent molars in full occlusion presented dental cavities or fillings. Furthermore, a previous longitudinal study showed that around 25% [Maltz et al, 2003] of the active noncavitated lesions progressed to cavities/fillings over a 2-year period. The fact that partially erupted permanent molars are more susceptible to occlusal caries than those in full occlusion leads to the recommendation that special attention be provided for the prevention, early diagnosis and monitoring of dental caries in these teeth.…”

“…When caries lesion was found mainly in dentin, the treatment decision was the restoration 20 . Studies show that it is also necessary to verify the clinical appearance of these lesions and through this make the best form of treatment and can often be the non-invasive treatment and monitoring of these carious lesions [47][48] . Thus, it is extremely important to check the activity of caries, the caries activity indicator shows us that the disease is present, i.e., presence of active lesions at the time of the clinical examination 20 .…”

“…Tanto a perda precoce, como a infiltração são consequências de falha na técnica de aplicação, causada por dificuldade na aplicação provocada por um acesso limitado, por inexperiência do operador, ou por contaminação (MCLEAN; WILSON, 1974;KARLZÉN-REUTERVING;VANDIJKEN, 1995;MALTZ et al, 2003).…”

“…Entretanto, apesar das dificuldades, diversos estudos mostram a efetividade em longo prazo de selantes de fossas e fissuras na prevenção de cárie (MCLEAN; WILSON, 1974;FORSS, 1991;SIMONSEN, 1991;KOMATSU et al, 1994;KARLZÉN-REUTERVING;VANDIJKEN, 1995;FEIGAL, 2002;MALTZ et al, 2003;AHOVUO-SALORANTA et al, 2013). Nenhum dos materiais estudados por Oliveira et al (2008), apresentou superfície muito rugosa e marcada, diferindo deste trabalho em que uma quantidade considerável de dentes, cerca de 30% nos dois grupos apresentou esta característica, sendo um pouco maior para o grupo CLP.…”
