Diagrammatic representation of differences in CI and RI. There are two individuals with similar caries experience, the CI is similar for both (0.33 and 0.29) but the RI is only 0.4 for the one who has had less restorative care and reaches 1.00 for the one who has had additional carious teeth extracted rather than left carious. This shows that the greater the difference between the CI and RI, the more extraction based treatment has been used rather than restorative based treatment to manage carious teeth
