The aim was to compare the detection and quantification of smooth surface caries by KaVo DIAGNOdent and quantitative laser/light-induced fluorescence (QLF) using a laser and a lamp as two different light sources. On 40 premolar teeth extracted from adolescents, 71 non-cavitated approximal surfaces were assessed. For QLF, both mean and maximum fluorescence losses were registered. To provide a gold standard for verification, the teeth were then sectioned and lesion depth, stratified on a five… CONTINUE READING
