The Very Dental Podcast Network

"...on the conservativeometer..."


Kevin and Zach are once again joined by Dr. Nate Lawson, this time to talk about the the minimally invasive treatment called resin infiltration. The only product on the market for this technique is called ICON, by DMG. Nate is the Director of Biomaterials at the UAB School of Dentistry! He's also part of the team that creates the DentinalTube Instagram channel

  • What is resin infiltration and when do you use it?
  • Designed for posterior interproximal lesions
  • Now used for anterior white spot lesions
  • Results? Does it hold up?
  • Resin infiltration vs. microabrasion
  • Resin infiltration is NOT a quick and easy procedure
  • Driven by conservation of tooth structure
  • How do you charge for it? (it's a mystery)
  • Are there white spot lesions that are too deep?
  • Teenagers post ortho
  • UAB has a course on resin infiltration (online, on demand)
