Management of rampant caries in children
Yiu / Wei
Because research has resulted in a better understanding of the etiology of dental caries as well as the introduction of new techniques and materials in the practice of dentistry, approaches toward the management of rampant caries should be reevaluated. The development of the acid-etching technique and the improvements in the physical properties and clinical performance of composite resins and glass-ionomer cements have completely changed the concepts of prevention, conservative dentistry, and dental esthetics. Several methods for the treatment of rampant caries are described and management of two cases is documented.
