Abstract: The aim of the present study was to validate the dental aesthetic index (DAI) and index of complexity, outcome and need (ICON) based on the opinions of a panel of Brazilian orthodontists. A comparison of these two orthodontic treatment need indices was carried out based on the consensus of a panel of 20 experienced orthodontists. A set of 108 study casts representing the full spectrum of malocclusions was selected. A calibrated examiner scored the casts for both indices. The orthodontists individually rated th… Show more

“…Malocclusions (MO) represent a relevant public health problem because of their high prevalence and the resulting aesthetic and functional impairment, leading to a negative impact on quality of life and high treatment cost for the patient. [1][2][3][4] Various studies have investigated the frequency and distribution of MO in young permanent dentition, [3][4][5] but the use of different methods and indicators impairs the comparison of these results. Thus, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends the use of the Dental Aesthetic Index (DAI) to standardize epidemiological data on MO.…”

“…For example, categorization using the Dental Health Component and the Aesthetic Component can be contradictory, with one suggesting treatment and the other not. They also have been validated against UK opinion and may not work for other countries, while the ICON has been validated in other countries [21,22].…”

“…[1819] A DAI scale that divided the continuous index score defined by the equation into four malocclusion severity levels was established, making it easier to use and encouraging its application in orthodontic care programs or malocclusion prevalence studies. [202122]…”
