Dental caries is the most common oral disease seen in dentistry despite advancements in science and continues to be a worldwide health concern.

Using a risk assessment is an evidence-based approach to recognizing an individual’s possible risk for developing dental caries. Taking the appropriate steps to reduce this risk at the earliest indications and symptoms of disease, rather than waiting for irreversible damage to the teeth to take place is preferred.
