Understanding Dental Caries : From Pathogenesis to Prevention and Therapy / by Michel GoldbergSpringer, 2016.

"The present book focuses most exclusively on the carious lesion, going from the initial pathogenesis of the lesion, mild enamel alteration, to deep dentin lesions, which appear as a major pathology with pulpal irreversible incidences. The therapies and prevention of the enamel decay are analyzed in the fi rst part of this book. After a brief description concentrating on the structure and epidemiology of the diverse forms of enamel alterations, carious lesions are reported. We describe successively enamel softening and analyze the etching pattern of acidic effects on enamel. Doing so, we moved from the superfi cial etching to the initial enamel carious lesion. Bacterial films and acidic biofi lms of the dental plaque lead to the formation of active and/or inactive lesions. The methods used for an accurate diagnosis of the carious lesion were improved during the past few years, and a specific chapter concludes the first part of the book, by reporting new diagnostic methods." From Preface
