Dr. Ghassan Aro uses the Icon DMG system to treat dental caries and improve your oral health. Cavities, or dental caries, begin as a bacterial infection which causes demineralization and destruction of the tooth tissue. With this system, our dentist can halt the progress of decay and prevent the cavity from forming.

Early stage cavities, known as caries or caries lesions, are the first stage of tooth decay, and if they are left untreated, they will develop into a full cavity. In these early stages, acids and bacteria in the mouth attack the tooth enamel to draw out minerals, resulting in the tooth becoming porous and the cavity continuing to grow and develop. The Icon Caries Infiltration system seals the tooth’s pores so that the acids can no longer penetrate the tooth, halting the progression of tooth decay before any damage can occur.
Icon Caries Infiltration works by:
- Arresting the progression of cavities in the early stages
- Correcting initial lesions before they can grow and result in the need for a dental filling
In addition to being a minimally invasive treatment, this system is also very gentle and will not require the use of any drilling or anesthesia.
