ICDAS allows detection of caries process at every stage and characterization of the caries activity status of lesion. Later, the criteria were modified and ICDAS II. Objective: To investigate the clinical performance of International Caries Detection and Assessment System II (ICDAS II) (a ranked visual scale). One hundred and sixty-three molars were independently assessed twice by two experienced dentists using the 0- to 6-graded ICDAS-II.

Discomfort of patients during visual inspection and LFpen application affected the performance of these methods adversely A systematic review of the performance of a laser fluorescence device for detecting caries. The STEPS approach allows a logical organization of different and often disparate indicators used, into a series of core indicators that can be used at STEP 1, 2 or 3, depending on the circumstances and local needs, preferences.

A recent review of caries detection criteria systems found that there were inconsistencies among the research criteria for icsas measuring systems. Weighted kappa values for intra- and interexaminer reproducibility were 0. Ekstrand et al has icdaz between the severity of carious lesions and their histological depth. Initial Breakdown in Enamel due to Caries with no Visible Dentin Once dried for approximately 5 seconds, there is distinct loss of enamel integrity, viewed from the buccal or lingual direction.

The darkened area is icras intrinsic shadow that may appear gray, blue or brown. The results show that the visual method and the fluorescence camera exhibited the highest correlation to the gold standard Table 2. Detecting carious lesion at the earliest possible stage of its development is definitely helpful in appropriate treatment planning for the same.

In this study, the ICC values for the LF and FC were high for intraexaminer reproducibility and the figures were comparable to studies already published [ 5 icxas, 20 ]. The sites were recorded using the following scores: Obvious loss of tooth structure, the extensive cavity may be deep or wide iccdas dentin is clearly visible on both the walls ij at the base.

The impact of magnification on occlusal caries diagnosis with implementation of the icdas ii criteria. In an study, approximal surfaces of 20 teeth were examined by two researcher to compare ICDAS II criteria ixdas radiography in detecting caries. The idas, mesial, distal and lingual root surfaces of each tooth should be classified as follows: Code Description 0 Sound 1 First visual change in enamel seen only after prolonged air drying or restricted to the confines of a pit or fissure 2 Distinct visual change in enamel 3 Localized enamel breakdown without clinical visual signs of dentinal involvement 4 Underlying dark shadow from dentin 5 Distinct cavity with visible dentin 6 Extensive distinct cavity with visible dentin.


The members of the coordinating committee of ICDAS have attempted several times to include the largest input of the cariology community in the process of developing integrated criteria.

There is a iccas area on the root surface or at the cementoenamel junction that is discoloured but there is no cavitation loss of anatomical contour less than 0.

In order to make such decisions, however, we need to carefully detect healthy hard tooth tissue as well as initial lesions so that they too can be given preventive therapy.

A simple decision tree is provided for applying the 7-code for classifying coronal tooth surfaces following the ICDAS criteria Flow Chart 1. Approximal surfaces of primary molars were evaluated by two examiners using LFpen, ICDAS and radiography and patients were asked to assess discomfort. Altough CARS is analogous with primary caries histologically, some characteristics of them can lead to diagnostic problems.

Clinical performance of two fluorescence-based methods in detecting occlusal caries lesions in primary teeth.

Sound tooth surface with restoration or sealant Code 1: Localized enamel breakdown without clinical visual signs of dentinal involvement. For both fluorescence methods, the sites were assessed independently from each other. The lesion is located in close proximity of the gingival margin. Distinct Cavity with Visible Dentin Cavitation in opaque or discolored enamel are exposing the dentin beneath. These criteria are applied to plaque-covered teeth.

The root surface neither exhibits any unusual discoloration that distinguishes it from the surrounding or adjacent root areas nor does it exhibit a surface defect either at the CEJ or wholly on the root surface. As a consequence of this changing trend to record the noncavitated lesions in the daily practice, ICDAS would certainly promote preventative therapies worldwide that encourage the remineralization of noncavitated lesions resulting in inactive lesions and the preservation of tooth structure, function and esthetics and a much decreased DMF all-over.


Journal Information Journal ID publisher-id: The chemical and histological processes involved in “outer lesions” are the same as primary caries. Visual and visuo-tactile detection of dental caries. This is achieved by sliding the ball end along the surface and a dentin cavity is detected if the ball enters the opening of the cavity, and in the opinion of the examiner the base is in dentin.

Code 2 There is a demarcated area on the root surface or at the cementoenamel junction discoloured and there is cavitation loss of anatomical contour more than 0. When seen wet there is no evidence of any change in color attributable to carious activity, but after prolonged air drying an opacity or discoloration consistent with demineralization is visible that is not consistent with the clinical appearance of sound enamel.

Validity and reproducibility of different combinations of methods for occlusal caries detection: Workshop held in Baltimore, Maryland. Sound Tooth Surface There should be no evidence of caries either no or questionable change in enamel translucency after prolonged air drying suggested drying time 5 seconds. It could be seen that sensitivity values at the D1 and D3-level were higher when cutoffs according to the literature [ 5 ] were used Table 3.

However; there were some differences between icddas systems when lesion activity was assessed. Reliability of a new caries diagnostic system differentiating between active and inactive caries lesions. All findings were recorded on data collection forms and later transferred to an Excel table.
