This image depicts an intraoral view of a young adult dental patient’s teeth and gums. The patient’s lips have been retracted, exposing the incisors and surrounding gingivae, revealing the presence of dental caries, or cavities, and erosion of the adjacent gingival tissue, known as the interdental papillae, in the interproximal spaces between these anterior teeth. You are also able to see deformation and erosion of the enamel layer in the region of the caries as well.
