In industrialized countries, for the past few years, the decreasing prevalence of dental caries is due to the improvements of oral hygiene, alimentary prevention and water and salt fluoridation. The dental caries are promoted by the consumption of sucrose when it is too high and/or too frequent between meals. The well cooked sucrose-containing starch - are more cariogenic than sucrose alone. Prevention aims first at high consumers of cariogenic foods and at subjects who are genetically predisposed to dental caries.
