ÖZ Başlangıç mine demineralizasyonu, minedeki mineral kaybının neden olduğu optik ilüzyon sonucunda beyaz nokta lezyonu olarak görülür. Bu lezyonların teşhisi zor olabileceğinden, tanı için birçok yöntem geliştirilmiştir. Bu derlemede beyaz nokta lezyonlarının tanı ve tedavi planlaması için güncel yöntemler incelenmiştir. Anahtar Kelimeler: Beyaz nokta lezyonları, rezin infiltrant, remineralizasyon, lazer floresans ABSTRACT: Initial enamel demineralization is also seen as a white spot lesion as a result of optical illusion caused by mineral loss in the enamel. Since these lesions can be difficult to diagnose, many methods have been developed for diagnosis. In this review, current methods for diagnosis and treatment planning of white dot lesions are examined.
