Abstract: The elderly population is increasing and they have a higher retention of natural teeth than previous cohorts. The increased prevalence of root caries in this group presents challenges to all those concerned in its management. In this article, aetiology, risk factors and diagnosis of root caries are discussed with the aim of implementing effective approaches in its management.

Clinical relevance: Caries control should, when possible, be non-operative.
