DMG expands its caries infiltration product line

July 1, 2019

A new Icon-Etch Refill etching gel is now available in the U.S.

Resin infiltration with DMG’s Icon is a well-established microinvasive treatment option.

Joining the Icon Smooth Surface caries infiltrant, which also treats smooth surface white spot lesions effectively, the Icon-Etch Refill contains 3-.45ml syringes of the Icon-Etch etching gel and 15 smooth surface tips.

"My partners and I have been using Icon for the past 10 years," says Richad Chaet, DDS. "We've had a success rate of 95 percent in arresting incipient interproximal lesions on permanent teeth, and we've also made many smiles by removing cosmetic defects on facial surfaces of anterior permanent teeth. Icon is a revolutionary product and has been a major benefit to our patients."
