Caries Risk Assessment (CRA) for Children                       

As a consequence of use of fluoride in public water supplies, dentifrices and professional products, improvement of oral hygiene practices as well as increased access to dental care, dental caries experience has declined in Australia. However, dental caries still remains one of the commonest chronic diseases in children. This special topic provides an overview of the importance of CRA for children, presenting the most important risk indicators and tools available to estimate caries risk.
