Other: Laser in caries prevention
- Clinical evaluation of the presence of dental caries on tooth occlusal surface [ Time Frame: up to 1 year ]
The clinical evaluation of the volunteers was performed 1, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months after treatment application by three different calibrated appraisers who were blind to the performed treatment.
The clinical and radiographic assessments of the caries lesions were recorded using the clinical criteria described by Chu et al.,(2009), which was adapted from Ekstrand's visual scoring system, and the sealant evaluation was adapted from Beiruti et al.,(2006)
The units of measure are: The scores obtained were considered as the following: V0, V1 and/or R0 represented sound teeth(with no need for restorative treatment), which were assigned a score of 0; V3, V4 and R1 to R3 represented decayed teeth(with a need for restorative treatment), which were assigned a score of 1. Considering the sealant scores, if the tooth evaluated presented with a caries lesion, it was considered to be a decayed tooth(with a need for treatment), regardless the sealant retention status.
