Until now, dental professionals have had only two choices in the treatment of caries: use fluoride and other treatments to remineralize enamel in the very early stages – or “wait and see” until it’s time to “drill and fill.” Icon represents an entirely new, revolutionary approach to treatment of incipient caries – a caries infiltrant. This breakthrough micro-invasive technology fills and reinforces demineralized enamel without drilling or anesthesia.
In OrtoVena we often hear….drilling? No thanks!
What are the benefits with ICON for patients?
- arrests caries progress without unnecessary loss of healthy tooth structure,
- cosmetic treatment of cariogenic white spots in one patient visit
- no drilling or anesthesia required, for greater patient comfort,
- patients with poor compliance can be treated earlier,
- prolonged life expectancy of tooth,
- not just minimally invasive dentistry…micro-invasive!
