This bibliography was prepared in support of the National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Conference on Diagnosis and Management of Dental Caries Throughout Life, held on March 26–28, 2001, in Bethesda, Maryland. The bibliography consists primarily of citations for journal articles written in English and published between 1980 and 2000; some other types of publications such as conference papers have been included, as well as some foreign-language articles. Sections are presented in three main categories: diagnosis, indicators of risk and other etiologic factors, and prevention and treatment of dental caries. Section 1 includes clinical and radiographic diagnosis and diagnosis of root and secondary caries. Section 2 discusses indicators such as sociological and behavior determinants, nutrition and diet, cariogenic infection, inherited risks, and other risks. Topics in section 3 include fluoride, sealants, plaque, antimicrobial agents, salivary enhancers, sweeteners, behavior modification, and methods of prevention and treatment.
