Root caries lesions were defined as soft, progressive, destructive lesions, either totally confined to the root surface or involving undermining of enamel at the cemento-enamel junction but clinically indicating the lesion initiated on the root surface (Katz, 1980).
Owing to the difficulties in detecting proximal caries lesions, clinical examination should be supplemented with radiographic examination.

(2) compared the oral health of children suffering from congenital heart disease with that of children from healthy controls, and found that the incidence of caries lesions was significantly higher in the former group.
Tight contact points between the proximal surfaces of the primary molars could be associated with an increased risk of the presence and activity of proximal caries, (1-3) as the initiation and progression of proximal caries lesions are related to higher plaque accumulation in these conditions.
