ICDAS allows detection of caries process at every stage and characterization of the caries activity status of lesion. Later, the criteria were modified and ICDAS II. Objective: To investigate the clinical performance of International Caries Detection and Assessment System II (ICDAS II) (a ranked visual scale). One hundred and sixty-three molars were independently assessed twice by two experienced dentists using the 0- to 6-graded ICDAS-II.

Abstract A new emphasis on caries measurement and management is required for the dental community. An in vitro study was done by Diniz MB et al 22using molars that were assessed twice by two examiners using the ICDAS II scoring and were validated histologically using Ekstrand and Lussi histological scores.

Apart from thorough detection and diagnosis of dental caries, compiling a treatment plan is another important task of a dentist. The consensus clinical scores were used to calculate sensitivity and specificity at the D 1 and D 3 diagnostic threshold. Reliability io a new caries diagnostic system differentiating between active and inactive caries lesions.

Oxford University Press; The greatest difference was found for treatment planning of dentine lesions, where the use of FC cut-offs according to the literature had the greatest agreement between operative treatment and dentine lesions, followed by use ucdas ICDAS-II.

Actually, differentiating between active and inactive caries lesions is difficult. In the present study, treatment decisions were determined using the cut-off points according to the manufacturer and according to the literature [ 5 ], respectively.

Detecting carious lesion at the earliest possible stage of its development is definitely helpful in appropriate treatment planning for the same. Topics Discussed in This Paper. Journal Information Journal ID publisher-id: The concept is that the system will be an open one maintained on the World Wide Web and subject kcdas peer review.

An abbreviated caries clinical trial design validated over 24 months. Reliability was assessed using ICC method.

Studies have also shown good inter- and intraexaminer reproducibility and the accuracy of ICDAS II in detecting occlusal caries, especially in the outer half of the enamel. The future holds promise for the development of clinically useful tools to assist dentists and researchers in making decisions about activity status of caries lesions 18 Performance of a pen-type laser fluorescence device and conventional methods in detecting approximal caries lesions in primary teeth–in vivo study.


So, caries can be detected at each stage, activity of them can be monitored and the effect of an material on the lesion can be determined clearly A new approach to reliability assessment of dental caries examinations. However; there were some differences between ifdas systems when lesion activity was assessed. AJ Pakhan, Dean, and Dr. Discussion The international caries detection and assessment system ICDAS was developed to provide clinicians, epidemiologists and researchers with an evidence-based system, which would permit standardized caries detection and diagnosis in different environments and situations.

The ICDAS detection codes for coronal caries range from 0 to 6 depending on the severity of the lesion. Measurement of histological and radiographic depth and width of occlusal caries lesions: The most advanced caries on the occlusal and approximal surfaces was recorded on extracted primary molars followed by their sectioning and histological validation using the Downer and Ekstrand-Ricketts-Kidd ERK scoring systems and it was concluded that validity and reproducibility of the ICDAS II criteria were acceptable when applied to primary molar teeth.

The future of research, practice, and education in Cariology requires the development of an iccas definition of dental caries, and uniform systems for measuring the caries process.
