Cariogram - Download

The Cariogram is a graphical picture illustrating in an interactive way the individual's/patient's risk for developing new dental caries in the future.

It also simultaneously expresses to what extent different etiological factors of caries may affect the caries risk for that particular patient. It illustrates a possible over-all risk scenario, a caries risk profile, based on what can be expected depending on an automated and weighted interpretation of available information. It does not specify a particular number of cavities that may occur.

A unique PC software that draws the Cariogram has been developed for educational, preventive and clinical purposes. It cannot replace the professional judgement of dental health personnel, but is an analytical tool that may help in decision-making. The Cariogram has been extensively discussed in academic journals, see Cariogram in PubMed
