Contemporary Advanced Methods for Early Caries Detection and Diagnosis
Abstract: Nowadays it is apparent that the conventional methods for early caries detection do not fulfill the criteria for the ideal clinical methods (and also to be used in scientific studies). In this regard they are subjective and insensitive. In this point it is of paramount importance to develop novel detecting techniques, which will be promising quantitative detecting methods of early caries lesions. In this assumption there are new technologies and devices for detection and diagnosis of dental lesions at their early stages of formation, evaluating their activity with higher sensitivity and specificity. Some of these devices are developed and commercially available, others are still under development. Consequently, there some creative contemporary methods and devices with great theoretical impact and exceptional practical preferences as diagnostic techniques and methods are presented i/ the technique of optical coherence tomography (OCT), ii/ polarized Raman spectroscopy (PRS).
