(5) The anticaries effect of F toothpaste containing 1100 [micro]g F/g (ppm F) in reducing enamel caries is well established, (6,7) but its effect on dentine has not been extensively studied.

It can be recommended that the systems such as Laser Fluorescence, Quantitative Light-Induced Fluorescence (QLF) and Digital Image fiberOptic Trans-illumination (DiFOTI) do facilitate earlier detection of enamel caries.
It consists of two components: the sealing of caries-prone pits and fissures, including those with enamel caries lesions (ART sealants), and restoring cavitated dentin carious lesions with sealant-restorations (ART restorations).

Early detection of enamel caries by the luminescence excited by visible laser light.
Katz et al have shown that, like enamel caries, root caries tends to primarily affect mandibular molars with a decreasing susceptibility for premolars and incisors.
The detection process aims to determine whether the observed condition is in fact a caries lesion and if so, the state of disease activity (progressing versus arrested).10 An additional essential condition for the detection of enamel caries is the removal of plaque from the tooth structure using either a toothbrush or prophy head/cup for the occlusal surfaces and dental floss for the interproximal surfaces.
Enamel caries varied in presence, location, and depth for each model.
