The article presents a study to find whether the use of caries-staining dyes is more effective and efficient than the traditional methods of caries identification. In the study, twenty-four extracted human posterior teeth with caries extending halfway through the dentin were selected for the investigation. They were stored in 10% phosphate-buffered formalin during the entire investigation. Teeth were divided into two groups. Specimens were decalcified in 5% nitric acid solution, dehydrated in alcohol and were embedded in paraffin.
