Icon represents a new category of dental products,” says Tim Haberstumpf, DMG America Director of Marketing. “It is the first product 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 dentin (D-1). In just one patient visit, Icon can arrest the progression of early enamel lesions and remove white spot lesions.
When a dentist discovers incipient caries that are beyond preventive therapies though too early for restorative treatment, Icon offers a simple alternative to the “wait and see” approach. With Icon, the dentist can offer immediate treatment without unnecessary loss of healthy tooth structure. Icon prevents lesion progression and increases life expectancy for the tooth. Icon also provides a highly esthetic alternative to microabrasion and other restorative treatments for cariogenic white spot lesions. White spot lesions infiltrated by Icon take on the appearance of the surrounding healthy enamel.
