Abstract

Purpose: To clinically evaluate the status of caries lesions adjacent to restorations (AdjCL) in primary molars, and its relationship to the child's carious activity and marginal restoration integrity. Methods: Three independent examiners (trained, calibrated and blinded) evaluated 64 randomly selected restorations (occlusal and occluso-proximal) by the AdjCL status (kappa= 0.844), the restoration marginal integrity (kappa= 1) and the radiographic presence of lesions in the occlusal restoration margins (kappa=l). One of the examiners also evaluated the child's carious activity (kappa=1). The variables were related to the outcome through Chi-square and Fisher's Exact analysis (α= 5%). Results: A prevalence of 40.63% AdjCL (88.46% inactive) was seen, with no significant association to the child's carious activity (P= 0.23). The association of the absence of AdjCL and the presence of marginal integrity was statistically significant (P= 0.013). Also, the presence of AdjCL occurred especially around older restorations.
