Icon® Caries Infiltration

Icon caries infiltration is an innovative treatment for treating caries while preserving healthy tooth structure.

In the past, the main choices for treating early caries (cavities) were to use fluoride to remineralize the tooth enamel or take a “wait and see” approach to determine if a cavity will form.

Icon caries infiltration is a new approach to treat emerging caries: a caries infiltrant. An infiltrant consists of micro-invasive technology that fills and reinforces demineralized enamel without drilling or anesthesia.

Caries infiltrated by Icon look like the surrounding healthy enamel. This provides a highly aesthetic alternative to fillings, all in one simple treatment with no drilling or anesthesia required.

Icon isn’t appropriate for all carious lesions, so it’s important to contact our office to schedule an appointment. We’ll be more than happy to let you know all your treatment options, including Icon caries infiltration.
