Abstract

Data were taken from six randomised controlled trials of caries prophylactic agents in order to investigate the capacity of bite-wing radiographs of posterior approximal tooth surfaces to enhance discrimination between test and control group measurements. The findings showed that, where an active control agent was employed, the addition of radiographic to clinical examination data failed to improve discriminatory power in comparisons between 3-year caries increments.
