ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to compare the validity of Cariview®, a new colorimetric caries activity test, with CRT® bacteria, a conventional bacterial culture method. In addition, this study assesses the correlation between the dental caries experience and activity between mothers and their children. 34 pairs of mothers and their children under the age of 6 years participated in this study with informed consent. After filling out a questionnaire and oral examination, the two caries activity tests above were performed on each subject. In the results, Cariview® scores were statistically significant with children’s caries experience (r = 0.598, p < 0.01) and showed higher correlation than CRT® bacteria scores. Cariview® scores showed statistically significant correlation with the number of decayed teeth in both mothers and children (p < 0.05). In both Cariview® and CRT® bacteria tests, there was no statistically significant correlation between caries experience and caries activity (p > 0.05). Cariview® colorimetric test will be clinically useful for predicting future caries risk and establishing a preventative strategy in pediatric dentistry.
