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.

Reproducibility and accuracy of the ICDAS-II for detection of occlusal caries in vitro.

The characteristics of the discolored area on the root surface can be used to determine the activity status of the lesion. If marginal discrepancies and caries are seen together, caries should be coded firstly 19 However; when these criteria are evaluated in vivo for detecting approximal caries, they are more unsuccessful 45 In the present study, occlusal lesions were determined using various currently common methods of caries detection and treatment options recommended on the basis of these examinations.

Detecting caries lesion is important. Prior to the laser fluorescence readings, the device was zeroed iii an obviously sound enamel spot on the tooth zero value. Active lesions have been described as being yellowish or light brown in color whereas arrested lesions appear darkly stained.

Icdas II criteria (international caries detection and assessment system)

ICDAS is a clinical scoring system that is used to detect and assess jcdas caries. Table 5 shows whether the treatment decisions changed significantly from preventive care to il care when different methods were used for treatment planning.

Clin Oral Investig ; The examiner should also score as sound a surface with multiple stained fissures if such a condition is seen in other pits and fissures, a condition which is consistent with noncarious habits e.

Extensive distinct cavity with visible dentin. The ACIS device was least accurate among the three systems for caries assessment. Initial Breakdown in Enamel due to Caries with no Visible Dentin Once dried for approximately 5 seconds, there is distinct loss of enamel integrity, viewed from the buccal or lingual direction.

Cavitation Noncavitated lesions have been described as active whereas cavitated lesions can be either active or arrested. As a consequence of this changing trend to record the noncavitated lesions in the daily practice, ICDAS would certainly promote preventative therapies worldwide that encourage the remineralization of noncavitated lesions resulting in inactive lesions and the preservation of tooth structure, function and esthetics and a much decreased DMF all-over.

The dental professionals need new approaches in caries detection, its assessment, and management. The color of the root lesions has been used as an indication of lesion activity.

Light microscope study ofthe effect of probing in occlusal surfaces.

jcdas Prediction of secondary caries around tooth-colored restorations: Agreeing where the evidence leads. There is a need to an uniform system which allows comparison of data collected in different researches.

Agreeing where the evidence leads. However, the basis of the codes is essentially the same that is presented ocdas Table 2 For validation of the findings, fissures were opened with rotating instruments and clinical depth was determined as gold standard. J Istanb Univ Fac Dent. The performance of different methods were compared in detecting approximal caries of primary teeth and influence of the discomfort reported by children on the performance of these methods was evaluated in a study done in Smooth surfaces describe mesial and distal surfaces that have contact with adjacent teeth and requires icdaas inspection from the occlusal, buccal and lingual directions.


The ICDAS system was developed to bring forward the current understanding of the process of initiation and progression of dental caries to icda fields of epidemiological and clinical research.

Underlying dark shadow from dentin with or without enamel breakdown-4 This lesion appears as a shadow of discolored dentin visible through an apparently intact marginal ridge, buccal or lingual walls of enamel.

The authors showed that there was no significant difference to the performance of the already well-known VistaProof.

Cross tables showing the relationship between the treatment decision according to different methods and the gold standard. This lesion appears as a shadow of discolored dentin which may or may not show signs of localized breakdown.

The root surface does not exhibit any unusual discoloration that distinguishes it from the surrounding root areas nor does it exhibit a surface defect at the cementoenamel junction or root surface. The occlusal sites of 84 extracted permanent teeth were examined using all methods and treatment decisions preventive or operative care were recorded based on each method independently.
