Title : Resin infiltration for the management of initial caries lesion


Dental caries is the most common oral disease world-wide. The first signs of enamel demineralization caused by the cariogenic process are the initial caries lesions which are referred to as white spot lesions which can form as early as two weeks following plaque accumulation. These lesions manifest as white opaque discoloration which compromises the esthetics and could result in cavitation in patients who are at high caries risk. The first line of treatment of Initial caries lesions is remineralization with fluoride-containing topical agents which helps to arrest the activity of the lesion. However, the esthetic resolution with fluoride may not be guaranteed. Other treatment options such as enamel microabrasion and veneers improve the esthetics. However, these treatment options are less conservative and may include the removal of tooth structure. Caries resin infiltration is a micro-invasive treatment in which the initial caries lesion is perfused with a synthetic resin which arrests the activity of the caries lesion and enhances the appearance of these lesions.

Audience takes away:

  • Understand the advantages and limitations of caries resin infiltration.
  • Understand the indications and contraindications of caries resin infiltration.
  • Demonstrate the technique of caries resin infiltration.
