(2) The presence of enamel defects, socioeconomic factors, maternal education level, exposure to fluoridated water, cariogenic diet and oral hygiene habits were assessed as possible risk factors associated with the occurrence of dental caries.
When it was combined with a cariogenic diet including 66% sucrose, a low caries effect was found.
Caries risk factors include poor oral hygiene, a cariogenic diet, family history, low fluoride intake, pit and fissure anatomy, and any history of caries.
The niches responsible for protecting the microorganisms anatomical features of the pits and fissures allows the necessary substrate for the cariogenic bacteria to grow in a protective environment.2 This factor is a hidden fact that most of the time the patient informs of maintaining good oral hygiene with minimum use of cariogenic diet but still dental caries develop in such patients despite observing the precautions.
This results in a highly cariogenic diet. Because the overriding concerns for these patients are maintaining body weight and survival, the cariogenicity of the diet has a low priority.
