  • There is no specific pattern that if one tooth is carious, then antimere tooth is also carious. But if we see from our clinical experience, normally, the other antimere tooth is also carious. May be it is because of same morphology of the tooth. So just take care and get your period checks ups done and go for preventive measures like fluoride application and pit & fissure sealants. for more info on dental caries, you can check the following link in our website... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-dental-caries-7.aspx
