Caries remains one of the most common diseases throughout the world. It has been  classified by the WHO as the third world's health calamity. This book describes the  cause, diagnosis, control and prevention of caries, and the progression in daily caries  clinical practice, and an increased emphasis on the dental caries in children and  secondary caries. The book will appeal to dental students as well as graduate students,
dental health educators, hygienists, and therapists. It will also be useful to scientists  working in the field of cariology and to qualified dentists who wish to update their  knowledge. I wish to thank Ms. Maja Bozicevic and InTech. And an enormous thank  to all the contributors who worked overtime to produce their sections.
