San Diego, Calif., USA Saturday, March 19, during the 89th General Session & Exhibition of the International Association for Dental Research, held in conjunction with the 40th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Dental Research and the 35th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research, a symposium titled "Novel Approaches to Bacterial Caries Management: an Efficacious Solution in View?" will take place. This symposium will occur from 8 a.m. 9:30 a.m. in room 7AB of the San Diego Convention Center.
Although caries is a preventable disease, it remains an important ongoing health care issue in specific parts or entire populations worldwide. On the horizon are new approaches that show a clear advantage over existing ways to manage and control dental caries disease. This symposium will present an overview of cutting-edge technologies that may make the difference in the near future.
Clinical efficacy data providing high-level evidence will be presented in support of three ways to minimize caries' damage to teeth and potentially eradicate caries disease entirely. To frame the issues in the wider realm of health care debates, potential effects on future health care costs will be discussed.
