Abstract

Aim: To ensure the diagnostic ability of CBCT for caries detection under different types of tooth colored restorative materials. Material and Methods: In the present study a total of 80 extracted carious permanent molar teeth were selected. Caries was classified as grade 3 according to International Caries Detection and Assessment System (ICDAS) criteria. Half of carious lesions were removed from 40 molars as Control specimens. Carious teeth were randomly assigned into two groups and each group was divided into four subgroups including: two carious and two non-carious as controlled group and all the teeth were filled with different bioactive restorative materials, then all the specimens were scanned with cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) using a Promax® 3DMid CBCT device (Planmeca, Oy, Helsinki, Finland). Results: Caries was detected in all the carious specimens of all the groups except that group A2 was much less remarkable than other groups. In the control specimens (non-carious) of all the groups: No caries was detected .Conclusion: Although CBCT is an excellent tool for secondary caries detection under different types of restorative materials but it should not be used as a primary diagnostic tool on regular basis. If its use is a must, so, optimized low dose low resolution protocol is recommended.
