Caries Infiltrant proximal

Description

Description

This innovative product was specifically developed to gently counteract early proximal caries. The patented proximal tip provides quick and easy access to the affected areas – without drilling.

With the enclosed wedges the affected teeth are gradually separated. Subsequently, the area is etched, dried and infiltrated with the special proximal tip. Driven by capillary forces, the highly viscous infiltrant is absorbed by the pore system of the caries lesion, filling it, stabilizing it, and preventing a further penetration of cariogenic acids, thus promoting caries arrest.




Summary

Summary

Indications

Micro-invasive method to counteract early non-cavitated caries (lesion depth extending into the outer third of the dentine) in proximal areas.

Good reasons

  • Gentle method for difficult-to-reach proximal lesions in just a few steps
  • No unnecessary loss of healthy hard tissue
  • Prolongs the life expectancy of the tooth
