We are excited to utilize revolutionary technology that involves no drilling at California Dental Innovations. Icon® is a non-invasive approach to caries, (cavities) and white spots that promotes the preservation of tooth structure in our patients.
What is Icon?
In the past, dental professionals have only had the dreaded drill available to carve out cavities, which meant an uncomfortable experience for the patient. With new Icon technology, the dentist is able to painlessly treat cavities without drilling away healthy tooth enamel. There are other advantages to using this type of treatment, as well, which include:
- Eliminating cavities before they can progress and lead to infection or tooth loss
- Cosmetically removing white spots in one short visit
- A less painful and time-consuming treatment
- Patients can be treated earlier – especially those who are non-compliant
- Prolonged tooth life expectancy
- Micro-invasive dentistry
- Allows for immediate treatment of lesions which are not at the stage that full restorations are need, which end the “wait and see” approach
