Hidden caries ; Case report
Hidden caries is a subtype of the occlusal pit and fissure caries type and is defined as a dentinal caries lesion near the occlusal surface of the tooth seen on a radiograph. In visual examination, the occlusal enamel is seen intact or is minimally perforated. Covert caries, Occlult caries or Fluoride syndrome are used as synonym. The percentage of occlusal dentin lesions that are clinically undetected ranges from 1.4-50%. Little is known about the mechanisms involved in the development of hidden caries. But it is thought that extensive use of topical fluoride or the special bacteriological profile has been a major factor. This case report is about detection and treatment of hidden caries of two children who visited the department of pediatric dentistry, Yonsei University Dental Hospital. The color of caries dentin found in hidden caries lesion is lighter than cavity forming caries, which makes it more difficult to detect caries by visual examination. Therefore diagnosis of hidden caries is often accomplished after clinical sign is recognized by patients. The use of advanced caries detection aids such as Diagnodent.. with periodic radiographic examination is seemed to be helpful for early detection of hidden caries.
