Progression of proximal caries in primary molars using the radiographic ICDAS: a retrospective cohort study
ConclusionsProgressions of the initial enamel proximal caries were significantly different among primary molars at the average 18.3-month follow-up. The median survival period of the enamel proximal caries was more extended than that of dentine but without statistical difference. These results provide essential information for dentists regarding an appropriate appointment for bitewing examinations.  (Source: Dental Technology Blog)

Nearly 2200 of the predators had been killed, including 248 in the most recent winter. The policy has provoked lawsuits and protests from conservation groups and dueling papers in scientific journals about whether the carnage benefits carib...
