Most respondents (62%) correctly identified as strongly agreed that a decreased salivary flow increases the risk for developing caries, 23% indicated that incipient carious lesions before cavitation can be remineralized, 22% responded that levels of salivary micro-organisms may indicate levels of caries risk or activity and 6% indicated that the removal of plaque is more valuable for maintaining gingival health than for preventing caries.
