music playing Hello friends I’m Dr. Harishankar Soni with Dr. Kalpesh Chandrawanshi and you are watching ”Easy Dentistry” In today’s video we’ll understand Classification of Caries even before we made a video on classification of caries that was G.V. BLACK classification you can watch that video from the description In this video we’ll understand definition of caries and in which factor we can classify it classification of caries has been done a lot and can be classified in many ways but which is the main factors, in which we can classify it we’ll understand that so before starting the video a request to you If you are visiting our channel first time so please do SUBSCRIBE it and click the BELL ICON for notifications let’s come to the topic Classification of dental caries first I’m telling you the definition of the caries In general this is destruction of calcified tissue and many definitions are there for caries I’m telling you broadly accepted definition of Shaffers according to Shaffers Dental caries is a microbial disease of calcified tissues of teeth which is characterized by demineralization of in organic portion and destruction of the organic portion of the tooth this is a one definition which is broadly accepted you have to remember this now come to the classification In which factors we can classify caries let’s see first I’m writing here dental caries , we’ll classify it you can be remember this by chart so it’ll be easy to remember main three factors are here In which we can classify it I’m writing like this here so first factor is according to morphology how we can classify it according to morphology what is the morphology of the tooth where caries occur, according to that we can classified it then … second is according to severity what is the severity of the caries or we can also called it progression of lesion how’s the progression of the caries we can classify it accordingly then third comes…. according to age pattern.. according to age pattern it means in which age group caries will occur according to that so you can classify it under these three headlines you have to remember this…..according to morphology according to severity and progression of lesion and according to age pattern Let’s understand according to morphology first so according to the morphology , first is.. pit and fissure caries pit and fissure caries second is.. first I write here then we’ll understand it second is smooth surface caries smooth surface caries then third is root caries root caries then last is Linear Enamel caries here are four in according to morphology so let me tell me about this first pit and fissure caries pit and fissure caries occurs in the pit and fissure area of the tooth as it name says then smooth surface caries it can occur in any area can occur in any surfaces of the tooth mainly in buccal and proximal surface then here is root caries as it name says it occur in roots but how we tell it root caries occur in cemento-enamel junction or in cementum so root caries occurs in cementum or in cemento-enamel junction then come to the fourth , linear enamel caries it occurs on labial surface of the anteriors in anteriors …towards labial surface then come to the second point….according to severity so first let me tell you its name in this first is….incipient caries Incipient caries after that second… Rampant caries third is…first incipient then rampant then then third is Arrested caries then fourth is…Recurrent caries recurrent caries after that fifth is…. Radiation caries radiation caries so in according to the severity and progression of lesion here Incipient caries….Rampant caries…..Arrested caries Recurrent caries and Rampant caries so let me explain it little bit so first of all , incipient caries occur in enamel in incipient caries white patches seen in the enamel differential diagnosis of this caries is fluorosis it resembles fluorosis many times so you have to remember this that there is white patches seen in the incipient caries after this ….rampant caries it occurs in the children and it’will be in two teeth or more than two teeth so mainly in rampant caries you have to remember that this occurs in the children after that come tooth arrested caries we can say it next stage of incipient caries white patches were taking place in the incipient caries pigmentation starts in the arrested caries brown colored pigmentation is also seen in this caries then here is recurrent caries so what is the recurrent caries If you have done any restoration, suppose it is note done well If some carious part remain there so if there is caries progression after restoration so we called it recurrent caries so this is the recurrent caries then comes…Radiation caries as the name suggests, it’ll be caused by radiation so if radiation is high in a patient suppose more radiation by x-rays or by any reason if it is high so because of that which caries occur we called it radiation caries so this was the according to the severity let’s come to the third factor according to age pattern you can understand by its name ….age pattern it’ll be according to age so first is…. Nursing bottle caries nursing bottle caries after that second is…. Adolescent caries then third is Geriatric caries geriatric caries this is according to age pattern so first is nursing bottle caries nursing bottle caries occurs children who bottle feed or breast feed it seen in those children and this occurs in only maxillary anteriors generally occurs in children who drink with a bottle fall asleep or sleep while doing breast feeding at night it was seen more in those children means in early childhood stage , when child is very little then second is adolescent caries it attacks mainly in the age between 4 to 8 years after this period which caries seen that caries comes under adolescent caries then third is geriatric caries caries which occurs in geriatric / aged patients so which is aged patients around age of 50 and above recession is seen in that patient because of recession cementum displaced in that which caries occur we can put that caries under geriatric caries so classification is done you can see this, if you remember it like this so it’ll be easy to remember you and today’s video is completed here today’s topic is completed here if this video was helpful to you so LIKE the video SHARE it with your friends so that they’ll also get information and comment us how you found this video and in which topics you want to video and before going must SUBSCRIBE the channel Thank you friends..
