Visual or visual-tactile examination to detect and inform the diagnosis of enamel caries.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2021 Jun 14;6:CD014546. Epub 2021 Jun 14.

Dundee Dental School, University of Dundee, Dundee, UK.

Background: The detection and diagnosis of caries at the initial (non-cavitated) and moderate (enamel) levels of severity is fundamental to achieving and maintaining good oral health and prevention of oral diseases. An increasing array of methods of early caries detection have been proposed that could potentially support traditional methods of detection and diagnosis. Earlier identification of disease could afford patients the opportunity of less invasive treatment with less destruction of tooth tissue, reduce the need for treatment with aerosol-generating procedures, and potentially result in a reduced cost of care to the patient and to healthcare services.
