Minimal Intervention in cariology and the treatment protocol proposed by the GC-MI-Advisory Board are based on an identification or diagnosis stage that includes an overall assessment of the disease - caries susceptibility assessment and detection of the presence of lesions. Detection methods must be used that enable detection of carious lesions as early as possible, to allow the least invasive treatments. Currently, only two detection tools have been validated scientifically (validity, reliability, applicability): 1) visual examination (see the criteria of the International Caries Detection and Assessment System or ICDAS in a previous article or on Internet http://184.108.40.206/icdas/) and 2) bitewing x-ray examination. The present article presents the bitewing radiographs - indications, technique, and interpretation.
