Selective Caries Removal- A New Improvised Technique for Caries Management
Keywords:Caries, caries removal, pulp protection
The strategies to manage deep caries are constantly evolving as evidence heaps for the use of minimal
conservative techniques which would prevent pulpal exposure leading to preservation of pulp vitality,
remineralisation of the carious dentin and arrest the progression of caries and offer a predictable success of
the restoration. Changes in our understanding about the caries process, advent of new adhesive restorative
materials and the possibilities of remineralization of demineralized dental tissues helps us to explore
different techniques in caries management. Selective caries removal is now considered an efficient and
evidence based approach in deep caries management and focuses on maximum retention of tooth material
thus avoiding the probability of pulp exposure to provide a sound peripheral bondable surface for restoration
and creating excellent hermetic seal.
