This in vivo study aimed to evaluate the performance of methods of approximal caries detection in primary molars and to assess the influence of the discomfort caused by these methods on their performance. Two examiners evaluated 76 children (4-12 years old) using visual inspection (ICDAS), radiography and a laser fluorescence device (DIAGNOdent pen, LFpen). The reference standard was visual inspection after temporary separation with orthodontic rubbers. Surfaces were classified as sound… CONTINUE READING
