Dental image processing is one of the emerging fields in case of human identification in forensic sciences. Dental x-rays have been quiet effective for the diagnosis and detection of problems in tooth. This paper presents an add on approach in the same area of medical biometrics to detect and diagnose the dental caries in case of decayed tooth. The enhancement and segmentation of digital dental x-ray image is done by using Infinite Symmetric Exponential filter (Shen Castan Algorithm). The aim of this paper will be to enhance the extracted part of the tooth from digital dental x-ray, finding edges corresponding to caries affected tooth and decide the dental treatment like filling or Root Canal Treatment.
