Management of Dental Caries Through the Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART) Approach

by M Rahmatulla, JE Frencken

This book, Management of Dental Caries through the Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART) Approach, deals with atraumatic restorative treatment (ART). This a compilation of papers presented in a symposium on ART held in India. World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes dental caries as one of the most common ailment of mankind. Current epidemiological studies have revealed interesting trends in the prevalence of caries. While the prevalence has declined in the advanced countries, the reverse has been the trend in underdeveloped and developing countries. The need to popularize the simple ‘ART’ modality is by no means an easy one. Despite, several efforts to convey the message of ‘ART’ to the profession and the public, there is no adequate enthusiasm and interest in changing philosophies of Oral Health Care. The symposium was an attempt to popularize this technique.
