LOUISE WILSON-ENGLISH introduces this issue’s product, industry and innovation news

Remove carious white spot lesions


Icon is DMG UK’s exciting treatment for incipient caries and carious white spot lesions, including those frequently caused by orthodontic brackets.

Icon is an innovative caries infiltration therapy. It represents a breakthrough in micro-invasive technology that reinforces and stabilises demineralised enamel without the need for drilling or sacrificing healthy tooth structure. One of the first products to bridge the gap between prevention (fluoride therapy) and caries restoration, Icon’s micro-invasive infiltration technology can be used to treat smooth surface and proximal carious lesions up to the first third of dentine. In just one visit Icon can arrest the progression of early enamel lesions and remove carious white spot lesions.

Icon offers a simple alternative to the ‘wait and see’ approach, enabling dentists to offer an immediate treatment without unnecessary loss of healthy tooth structure. It prevents lesion progression and increases life expectancy for the tooth. Providing a highly aesthetic solution, carious white spot lesions treated with Icon take on the appearance of the surrounding healthy enamel. Total treatment time is about 15 minutes.
