How to integrate CAMBRA into private practice

J Calif Dent Assoc. 2007 Nov;35(11):778-85.


The traditional dentistry approach treated the disease with a limited surgical strategy aimed at removing carious lesions on teeth. Today, the dental profession is refocusing its efforts to include risk assessment with evidence-based diagnosis while also treating the biofilm component of the disease. While there is compelling science to support CAMBRA, there are fewer articles with practical direction regarding how to integrate CAMBRA diagnostics and treatment into clinical practice, which this article addresses.
