Incomplete Caries Removal: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
Journal of Dental Research , 03/19/2013Schwendicke F et al.
This study systematically reviewed randomized controlled trials investigating one– or two–step incomplete compared with complete caries removal. Based on reviewed studies, incomplete caries removal seems advantageous compared with complete excavation, especially in proximity to the pulp. However, evidence levels are currently insufficient for definitive conclusions because of high risk of bias within studies.
