In other words, ICON is a highly infiltrative resin that penetrates deeply into the cavitated tooth structure. It homogenizes with the tooth color, and it is highly resistant to abrasion. On smooth surfaces ICON combines early caries arrest with a cosmetic treatment of cariogenic white spots – in only one sitting! Therefore, a caries infiltration on smooth surfaces is especially well-suited for orthodontic patients after the removal of brackets. For proximal caries treatment gentle on the tooth substance DMG developed a special application to treat even caries with a radiographic progression into the first third of the dentin. It allows quick and easy access to the affected area – without drilling!
As research in dentistry advances, I promise to provide my patients with the most preventive and conservative methods that exist in dental field, and this is another one of them, and many will follow.
