The Micro-infiltration System

Icon DMG Style italiano
No more drilling

A Double Application Field for caries..

Icon is the revolution micro-invasive treatment in white spots.

No more drilling sound structure to reach the cavity. For its original purpose, Icon is a great help in early treatment of E1-D1 carious lesions, especially in posterior areas. Minimal invasiveness, maximum result.

...and for white spots

Anterior, unaesthetic white spots are not an issue with Icon. By changing the refraction index of the white spot, Icon makes the lesion look just like sound enamel. Aesthetic meets micro-invasiveness.

Clinical case by dr Anna Salat

“For perfect results, let the resin REST for 3 minutes, to let it infiltrate the prisms. Then remove the excess material.”

Posterior resin infiltration and direct vision

The infiltration technique we’ve been talking about might actually be a great way to stop interproximal incipient caries in a non invasive way. Posterior resin infiltration requires direct vision of the proximal lesions of the enamel. These kind of lesions before cavitation, the initiation of the caries process, is characterized by a subsurface white spot formation, with a overlying almost intact surface.

Once a tooth is cavitated because of a caries, the lesion tends to progress. (5)(6) So ideally before having a cavitated lesion some kind of intervention should be done: to invert the process of demineralization to a remineralization, or, at least, to stop the demineralization process.

The infiltration technique

The resin infiltration technique in interproximal caries lesions is a less invasive technique compared to a cavity preparation and fits in the concept of minimal intervention dentistry.

Posterior resin infiltration teeth separation

STEP 1 – TOOTH SEPARATION
Teeth can easily and gently separated with a wedge, making room in the interproximal area for the Icon applicator.

STEP 2 – GET ACCESS TO THE LESION SURFACE
Icon Etch is a 15% hydrochloric acid gel, that can be easily placed thanks to the thin applicator, without etching the adjacent tooth. The etching process takes 120 seconds, than the gel is thoroughly washed.

STEP 3 – DRY IN AND OUT
Once the gel is completely rinsed, carefully dry the water. Icon Dry is a solution of ethanol, really helpful in completely dehydrating the area: apply for 30 seconds, then air-dry.

Correctly documenting the procedure is very important as Icon resin is radio-translucent, as making it visible in x-rays would require a radiopaque filler that would increase its viscosity and affect wettability and penetrative properties.

Icon Dry for dry and preview final result
A simulation of the final result can be done with Icon Dry: after etching and rinsing, the ethanol solution helps you to make a previsualization of the result. The reason of this useful preview is that Icon Dry and Icon Infiltrant have a similar refraction index.

If you’re not happy, you can repeat the etching process up till satisfing results is achieved and you can use the applicator to infiltrate with the resin.

Doctor’s TIPS

Giulio Pavolucci – StyleItaliano Honorary Member

SIMULATION OF THE FINAL RESULT

Use Icon Dry after rinsing the etchant agent. This ethanol solution gives you a previsualization of the result. Thanks to the refraction index similar to that of Icon Infiltrant.

SPOTS ARE TOO DEEP?

If you’re not happy with the anticipated result, you can repeat the etching process up till satisfing results is achieved. In aesthetic areas, the micro-infiltration technique is the best attempt for white spots.

Useful
tip!

Icon IS AN ADHESIVE PROCEDURE
A good isolation of the operative field is required: rubber dam should be used to get the best results.
