Abstract

Dental caries appears to be the most prevalent infectious disease in the world. Occult caries/ hidden carious lesions are very challenging for detection as far as dentists are concerned. However, the nature of these lesions, their etiologies and the reasons of why they have eluded early, clinical diagnosis are still unclear. Till date only a very few microbiological studies have been conducted to obtain an insight into the bacteriological profile of these lesions which can also be an etiological factor. The aim of this case report is to present one such case of occult caries which also includes a microbiologic analysis of the lesion. It also includes a novel approach using revascularization for the management of the affected immature tooth.
