Caries Detection / Diagnosis. A Chimera?

Topic Description :

Caries Detection / Diagnosis. A Chimera?


The purpose of this webinar is to discuss the current available methods to detect caries lesions. The current evidence-based caries understanding, based on biological concepts, involves new approaches in caries detection, assessment, and management that should include non-cavitated lesions. Even though the importance of management of non-cavitated (NC) lesions has been recognized since the early 1900s, dental caries has been traditionally detected at the cavitation stage, and their management has focused strongly on operative treatment. Methods of detection of early carious lesions have received significant research attention over the last 20 years. The most common method of caries detection is visual-tactile.

Learning Objectives:

  • summarize the scientific evidence on caries detection and diagnosis – recognize the different caries levels
  • estimate the caries progression rate – illustrate the different caries detection and recording systems
  • predict the feasibility of the new approach
