MONNERAT, Antônio Fernando; CADETTE, Carolina; MONNERAT, Aline Borges Luiz  e  BARQUETE, Carolina Guedes. Carious lesion's texture simulation for preclinical training. Rev. ABENO [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.1, pp. 55-61. ISSN 1679-5954.

The aim of this study was to present a simple method to simulate two dentin carious textures in acrylic teeth for preclinical training. The proposed development of this methodology arose from the need for the training of selective (partial) caries removal by professionals working in public health, improving the theoretical and practical understanding regarding the lesions' layers: soft, leathery, firm, and hard dentine. This method allows to identify which layer should be removed completely, which should be partially removed and what should be left intact. The success in training over 1000 professionals working at Brazilian Dental Public Health System was the incentive for writing this article, detailing the methodology.
