This study aimed to record and monitor over a 2.5-year period the occurrence of cavitation and lesion depth progression in approximal surfaces with radiographic caries at baseline. In total, 66 approximal sites (in 29 students), where at least one of the contacting surfaces had radiographic caries, were selected to take part in the study. A clinical examination undertaken before and after tooth separation in order to assess the presence/absence of cavitation was repeated every sixth month. To… CONTINUE READING
