The American Dental Association Caries Classification System (ADA CCS)
The American Dental Association Caries Classification (ADA CCS) is a visual criterion developed to assist clinicians in categorizing all stages of the caries lesions. The criteria consist of 4 scores. The criteria can be used on coronal, root caries and caries around restorations. It categorizes lesions according to severity and activity. It is useful in caries detection and management.
