The aim of the present study was to assess the influence of the calibration mode of a laser fluorescence measurement device on caries detection. While positioning the probe on an occlusal carious lesion or stained fissure using a clamp, the occlusal surface of each of 62 teeth was covered with a light-body silicone impression material to facilitate a reproducible probe position. Then, measurements of the occlusal lesions were performed after standard and individual calibration at four non… CONTINUE READING
