ICON: Caries Treatment without Drilling

Fear of the dentist is one of the most common anxieties that people have – there are even several global surveys conducted based on this topic. Mostly, people are afraid of pain. Because of their fear, unfortunately, they refuse to visit the dentist even for uncomplicated non-invasive treatments, such as dental prevention or small caries treatment which nowadays can be performed utterly painlessly.

What is the ICON® method?

ICON® is a non-invasive method for the treatment of caries. This means no drilling or any other intervention with the structure of the tooth. It was developed by university scientists in Germany and is based on the principle of re-mineralization of the tooth enamel by application of various pastes rich in fluoride, resulting in the strengthening of the integrity of the tooth.

Thanks to its easiness and low demands, this method is very popular in dentistry for children.

The effect of the ICON® method

After the treatment, the surface of the tooth looks and feels like healthy tooth enamel. The progress of caries is stopped completely and the lifespan of your tooth is prolonged.

Is the ICON® method suitable for all types of caries?

Only emerging dental caries in tooth enamel can be treated by the ICON® method. If the caries already penetrated the dentin, this method will no longer help. The sooner you visit the dentist, the easier the solution for your problem will be; therefore try not to hesitate too long. The longer you wait, the deeper the caries proceeds.
