Background: Radiography plays an important role in the detection of interproximal caries. Objectives: The aim of the present study was to determine diagnostic accuracy of chargecoupled devices (CCD), Photo Stimulable Phosphor (PSP) and film radiography in detecting non-cavitated caries. Patients...
- Imaging the oral cavity: key concepts for the radiologist. LAW, C. P.; CHANDRA, R. V.; HOANG, J. K.; PHAL, P. M. // British Journal of Radiology;Oct2011, Vol. 84 Issue 1006, p944
The oral cavity is a challenging area for radiological diagnosis. Soft-tissue, glandular structures and osseous relations are in close proximity and a sound understanding of radiological anatomy and common pathways of disease spread is required. In this pictorial review we present the anatomical...
- Temporary tooth separation with special reference to the diagnosis and preventive management of equivocal approximal carious lesions. Pitts, Nigel B.; Longbottom, Christopher // Quintessence International;Aug1987, Vol. 18 Issue 8, p563
The article discusses the method of temporary tooth separation for the diagnosis and management of equivocal approximal carious lesions. The diagnosis of carious legions is particularly difficult and they are detected once they have become quite extensive. The generally accepted diagnostic tools...
- A REPRODUCIBLE METHOD FOR CARIES EVALUATION. DIRKS, O. BACKER; VAN AMERONGEN, J.; WINKLER, K. C. // Journal of Dental Research;Jun1951, Vol. 30 Issue 3, p346
The article focuses on a roetgenologic method to reliably evaluate proximal enamel caries of premolars and molars for dental surveys of caries in large groups of patients. It mentions the need to differentiate between the prevention of caries and the inhibition of existing caries. It examines...
- Diagnosing interproximal caries using wet radiographs without a view box. Klein, Daniel R. // Quintessence International;Oct1979, Vol. 10 Issue 10, p107
The article discusses a study which investigates the advantage of the examination of radiographs dry and mounted upon a view box as opposed to their inspection wet. In the study, 90 sets of posterior bite-wing radiographs were taken from the files of Hurley Medical Center's Pedodontic Clinic....
- Enhanced controls. // British Dental Journal;6/11/2005, Vol. 198 Issue 11, p724
This article reports that Velopex's Extra-X automatic daylight x-ray film processor can process all sizes of dental film from intra-oral to panoramic. It has had a recent redesign of its control panel and decals to ensure ergonomic efficiency and at-a-glance clarity. The machine's aesthetics...
- Tool detects early signs of tooth decay. // Current Science;9/20/96, Vol. 81 Issue 2, p12
Reports on the development of a tool by a team of European dentists which detects tooth cavities in their earliest stages. Application of a small electric current to the tooth's enamel; Treatment of cavities with fluoride.
- New Sirona SIROinspect caries detection system. // Auxiliary;Jul/Aug2012, Vol. 22 Issue 4, p4
The article offers brief information on the Sirona SIROInspect caries detection system uses for Fluorescence-Aided Caries Excavation technology from Sirona Dental Systems Inc.
- The efficacy of caries detection using three intraoral films under different processing conditions. Ludlow, John B.; Platin, Enrique // Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA);Oct97, Vol. 128 Issue 10, p1401
Presents a study which compared the diagnostic accuracy of caries detection using three films developed under different processing conditions. Identification and information on these films; Evaluation of the films diagnostic efficacy; Results of the study; Discussions surrounding the study.
