Now onto occlusal caries, which are more often found clinically when small. Here’s the goods.
- A well-localized radiolucent band/area is seen at the dentino-enamel junction of the occlusal surface. It starts as a band following the junction but as it grows will become more of an area.
Note the radiolucent area at the center of the dentino-enamel junction of the mandibular first molar indicating occlusal decay. (There’s also a massive round cone cut 🙂 ). If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below. Thanks and enjoy!
