Dental caries is an ubiquitous chronic disease in humans. Our current knowledge indicates that the disease is caused     by multiple factors that lead to the increase of carbohydrate fermenting bacteria in the oral microbiome. Biological management of caries requires promoting behaviors and interventions that create a healthy microbiome. Caries management starts with assessing the stages of the caries process, risk assessment, risk-adjusted prevention, control of non-cavitated lesions, and preservative surgical restorative care. The ultimate outcome is the shift in risk to the lowest level and protection of sound tooth structure.
