Caries Management by Risk Assessment vs. Traditional Preventive
Strategies: Effect on Oral Health Behaviors and Caries Diagnoses
The objective of this study was to determine whether a caries management
by risk assessment (CAMBRA) tool improves oral self-care behaviors and
decreases caries diagnoses as compared to traditional oral health
education strategies. Findings show patients with a CAMBRA lowered their
caries risk as evidenced by lower plaque index scores.
