Icon Smooth Surface & Proximal

A Completely New Technology And Treatment Option

Description

Icon by DMG America is a completely new technology and treatment option. It fills, reinforces, demineralized enamel and incipient caries without drilling or sacrificing healthy tooth structure. Icon provides a highly esthetic alternative to microabrasion and other restorative treatments for cariogenic white spot lesions (WSL). WSL infiltrated by Icon take on the appearance of the surrounding healthy enamel. It is not intended to replace remineralization techniques or the attempt to remineralize early lesions. It is intended for when the doctor has decided that remineralization is not working and the drill is not yet necessary.

Conclusion

The CPS review team felt Icon by DMG America was an impressive product that is a first choice for incipient interproximal caries and white spot lesions. Many of the Evaluation team were skeptical about Icon and did not think it would work. Almost all were pleasantly surprised at both the outcome and simplicity of usage. Most used and preferred the smooth surface application due to its ease of access and application. Some evaluators said they etched more than once to get even better results on White Spot Lesions. Case selection is everything for Icon’s success. Icon works most effectively on incipient interproximal and non cavitated white spot lesions .It is not for cavitated lesions because the infiltrant is a low viscosity unfilled resin, making it a poor choice for a cavitated lesion but an excellent choice for incipient lesions. Though not all lesions disappeared 100%, all lesions were more than 50% improved.
