Resin Infiltration

Healthy teeth, happy life: Resin Infiltration Treatment for a pain-free and stunning smile

Protect your teeth from future damage! Transform your smile with Resin Infiltration treatment: The safe and effective way to combat tooth decay.

How can resin infiltration treatment help you?

Resin infiltration treatment is a non-invasive dental procedure that is used to treat white spot lesions, which are areas of demineralization and discoloration on the tooth enamel. Here are some ways that resin infiltration treatment can help you:

  1. Improved Aesthetics: Resin infiltration treatment can effectively restore the natural color and appearance of teeth affected by white spot lesions, improving the overall aesthetics of the smile.

  2. Pain-Free: The procedure is minimally invasive and pain-free, meaning patients can enjoy a comfortable experience without any need for anesthesia.

  3. Prevents Progression of Decay: Resin infiltration treatment can stop the progression of early-stage tooth decay, preventing the need for more invasive procedures like drilling or filling.

  4. Preserves Natural Teeth: Resin infiltration treatment preserves natural teeth by removing the decay and protecting the remaining enamel, which can help prevent the need for extractions or other extensive treatments.

What To Expect

If you are planning to undergo resin infiltration treatment at our clinic, here is what you can expect during the procedure:

  1. Evaluation: We will first evaluate the affected tooth/teeth using visual inspection and dental X-rays to determine the extent of the demineralization and whether resin infiltration treatment is suitable for your condition.

  2. Preparation: After identifying the target teeth, we will clean the surface of the affected tooth/teeth with pumice or a similar abrasive to remove any plaque or tartar.

  3. Isolation: The affected tooth/teeth will be isolated from the surrounding teeth and soft tissues using a dental dam or a similar device.

  4. Etching: The surface of the affected tooth/teeth will be etched with a mild acidic solution to create a rough surface that will help the resin infiltrate the enamel.

  5. Resin Application: A special resin material will be applied to the affected tooth/teeth and allowed to infiltrate the enamel for several minutes.

  6. Curing: After the resin has been applied, a curing light will be used to harden the resin and bond it to the enamel.

  7. Polishing: Finally, the resin will be polished to ensure a smooth and natural-looking finish.

The entire procedure typically takes about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the number of teeth being treated and the extent of the demineralization. You should not experience any pain or discomfort during the procedure, and anesthesia is typically not required.

After the procedure, you may experience some sensitivity or discomfort, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. We will provide instructions for post-treatment care, including how to brush and floss around the treated teeth, and when to schedule a follow-up appointment.


Most frequent questions and answers

Resin infiltration is a minimally invasive dental treatment used to treat incipient (early stage) cavities and white spots on teeth.

Resin infiltration involves the application of a resin material to the surface of the affected tooth. The resin material infiltrates the pores of the tooth enamel and fills in any spaces where decay or discoloration is present.

Resin infiltration is a minimally invasive procedure that typically does not cause any pain or discomfort.

The longevity of resin infiltration depends on several factors, including the location and extent of the cavity or discoloration, the patient’s oral hygiene habits, and the amount of wear and tear on the tooth. Generally, resin infiltration can last for several years with proper care.

Resin infiltration is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require any drilling or removal of healthy tooth structure. Traditional fillings, on the other hand, require the removal of healthy tooth structure in order to place the filling.

The cost of resin infiltration varies depending on the location of the dental practice and the extent of the treatment needed. It is typically less expensive than more invasive treatments such as fillings or dental crowns.

Resin infiltration does not require any special care beyond regular brushing and flossing. Patients should avoid consuming foods and drinks that are high in sugar and acid, which can contribute to tooth decay.
