- Gordon Nikiforuk
Caries, because of its uniqueness as a disease, its ubiquitous nature, and its stubborn resistance to resolution remains as one of man’s most common, oldest, and singly costliest ailment. The total health handicap due to dental caries is staggering. In western countries there has been a dramatic decline in caries over the past decade but in the economically developing countries caries prevalence is increasing as dietary habits of industrialized nations are adopted.
