The most frequently cited reason for replacing direct dental restorations is secondary caries. (3-11) Therefore, it stands to reason that if one lowers the caries risk of the patient by using Anderson's medical model (1) or Featherstone's CAMBRA approach (caries management by risk assessment), (12,13) the placed dental restoration will fare better and last longer.
However, earlier restorative intervention may also put the tooth at risk of fracture, secondary caries, restoration failure, or pulpal symptoms, which may also jeopardize the longevity of this tooth [32].
However, CBCT images were found to be superior to intraoral techniques in other studies for secondary caries lesions under both composite and amalgam restorations (13-15).
Lately, many studies focused on investigating the efficiency of Er:YAG to remove carious lesion.1,2,3 Secondary caries (recurrent caries) is a primary carious lesion of tooth at the margin of an existing restoration; they usually occur years after composite or other kinds of restorations were performed.
Optical density would assist the correct diagnosis of several clinical issues, such primary or secondary caries, excess of restorative material on the cervical margins of proximal surfaces, the proximal contour of restorations, the contact between the restorative material and the adjacent tooth, and the distinction between tooth and liner or restorative material of voids and cracks (CURTIS JR.
Secondary caries is a major problem in restoration dentistry which develops at leaky crown margins or insufficient other restorations.
Lack of interaction between adhesive system and tooth substrate yields poor marginal sealing leading to marginal leakage, which, in turn, may result in early loss of the restoration, postoperative sensitivity, discoloration, marginal deterioration and secondary caries, and ultimately to displacement of the restoration and pulpal damage.
Fluoride ions released by glass-ionomer cements helped in reduction of demineralization of adjacent enamel, enhancement of his remineralization and prevention of secondary caries by inhibition of microbial growth and metabolism [5,6].
(1) The development of secondary caries is similar to that of primary caries but differs according to the location and characteristics of the surface, such as roughness and marginal defects.
A number of clinical measures to assess dental treatment needs were included: a) teeth that had apparently sound restorations or diagnosed as caries-free were categorised under "no dental treatment required/require primary prevention", b) teeth diagnosed with caries lesions in enamel and/ or dentine, teeth with a broken restoration or restoration with secondary caries at the margins were categorised under "require restoration", c) extracted and badly broken down teeth that could not be restored were categorised under "require extraction and/or space closure".
