Resumen

MARRO FREITTE, ML et al. Treatment of approximal caries lesions using infiltrants. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2011, vol.4, n.3, pp. 134-137. ISSN 0719-0107.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-01072011000300011.

Based on the respect for the tooth structure with adequate treatment and arrest of carious lesions, ICON ® has been developed. This system enters the affected tissue with a low-viscosity light-curing resin (infiltrant) with no need for mechanical opening of a cavity. This will introduce the infiltrants as tools for the treatment of proximal lesions. The “infiltrant” works by blocking the progression of caries lesion and stabilizing tooth structure. This report shows the technique with the use of the ICON ® kit, by presenting a case of proximal carious lesion extended to the outer third of dentin.

Palabras clave : Approximal caries; infiltrant; sealants.
