ATP-driven bioluminescence predicts children at high risk for tooth decay: OHSU study The study.

Untreated, many cariogenic bacteria adhere to teeth and breakdown the protecting enamel covering, leading to lesions and cavities. There exists a critical want in dentistry to develop better quantitative assessment options for oral hygiene and to determine individual risk for dental care caries, because disease and also restorative treatment results in the irreversible lack of tooth structure. Prior caries risk assessments have focused on social, behavioral, microbiologic, clinical and environmental variables.
