In the classification of dental caries, what class is the caries located on the middle third of anterior teeth?
Class 3. Class 1 - single surface on posterior teeth. Class 2 - involves an inter proximal surface on a posterior tooth. Class 3 - involves an inter proximal surface of an anterior tooth (usually in the middle or incisal third). Class 4 - involves the incisal edge of an anterior tooth. Class 5 - cavity along the gum line.
Class V . If the incisal edge is not involved.
