ABSTRACT

In spite of recent improvement in the awareness about oral and dental health amongst people; dental caries remains a significant problem especially in developing countries. Dental caries is an irreversible microbial disease of the calcified tissues of teeth, characterized by demineralization of the inorganic portion and destruction of the organic substance of the tooth, which leads to cavitations.[1] It is a complex and dynamic process where a multitude of factors initiate and influence the progression of disease. Pertaining the current trends, no proven vaccinations are in current use so early detection and prevention is better than cure. Various tools for early detection of caries are available like Digital radiography, Digital imaging fiber-optic transillumination, Laser-induced fluorescence, Laser light DIAGNOdent, DIAGNOdent pen, Ultrasound caries detector, etc, with its own advantages and disadvantages.[2] In recent studies, dermatoglyphic patterns are also showing some prevalence with dental caries. The study of the human hand has always been fascinating, not only to anthropologists and physicians but also to psychologists, writers, painters, sages, and chiromancers.[3]
