Figure 1: Root caries index distribution in the study population based on the type of teeth affected with root caries and fillings. The root caries index percentage among the study population ranged from 0.76% to 5.62%, indicating a wide variation in attack rates. Based on type of teeth, upper arch incisors and canines were more affected with root surface caries and fillings, whereas premolars and molars were commonly affected in lower arch
