Since closed proximal spaces in the primary teeth are strongly correlated with caries occurrence, different methods of caries detection have been studied.
The authors of this study opted to use an adhesive system for proximal caries sealing due to 1) the lower viscosity of this material when compared with conventional sealants, which allowed easy handling within the proximal space; 2) better penetration of the adhesive system into natural lesions leaving no overhang that could bias the radiograph readings; (4) and 3) the clinical success of using adhesive systems for sealing sound occlusal fissures.
