When introduced 10 years ago, Icon created an entirely new category of dentistry: caries infiltration. It was developed to treat incipient carious lesions by micro-invasively blocking the progression of early interproximal caries while preserving healthy tooth structure to prolong the life expectancy of natural teeth. Prior to Icon, a clinician identifying incipient caries had two options: treat them invasively with drilling and anesthesia, or, take a “wait-and-see” approach that required even more invasive treatment if the incipient caries transitioned into advanced caries. With Icon, the clinician can immediately treat the incipient lesion without the use of drilling or anesthesia. The caries infiltrant has also been shown to be highly effective in treating white spot lesions.
