The practicing dentist will find this issue valuable as it covers all aspects of small and hidden caries. Experts will discuss the diagnosis (using laser fluorescence, radiology), prevention (resin restorations, dietary management) and treatment options (bonding and curing, conservative operative techniques). Additional chapters on dental hygiene and treatment decisions will round out the volume.
