Abstract

        The objective of this article is to review comparison of interpretation, difficulty and ease of examination on validity, reliability and component of Dental Aesthetic Index (DAI), Index of Ortho-dontic Treatment Need (IOTN) and Index of complexity, Outcome and Need (ICON). In summary, the DAI is suitable for screening orthodontic treatment needs in the community because it is less time consuming and no special training is needed. IOTN and ICON are suitable for assessing orthodontic treatment needs in clinics because these two indices assess malocclusion in more detail.
