Dental caries (decay), the most prevalent of diseases, represents a health problem of immense proportions1. It principally affects posterior (back) teeth on occlusal (biting) and approximal (adjacent contacting) surfaces. Caries starts as a subsurface demineralization of enamel, may progress to the underlying dentine and, eventually, to cavitation of the surface. Accurate diagnosis before cavitation would permit targeted preventive treatment, thereby significantly improving dental health and… CONTINUE READING
