Dental cavities in children are still highly prevalent in the UK and dentists carry out many thousands of procedures up and down the country every day to manage this. However, there is uncertainty amongst dentists as to the best way of managing this in deciduous (first) teeth. This trial looks at this uncertainty by investigating three different approaches. The results of the trial will inform policy, guidance and future teaching on managing dental caries in children.
