This paper presents a method, which, on the basis of the caries experience, predicts the caries increment up to the age of 15 years. This method provides the best caries prediction so far available. By applying the principles of medical decision-making cut-off points of risk can be assessed, whereby children can be selected as at risk or not at risk. The method is applicable in child populations with different caries incidences and meets the requirements of accuracy. With the user-friendly method, more than 80% of the children at risk can be identified and selected.
