Resin infiltration technique; When and how to apply
Resin infiltration technique is an alternative therapeutic approach to prevent further progression of enamel carious lesions. This treatment aims to occlude the microporosities within the lesion body by infiltration with low-viscosity light-curing resins that have been optimized for rapid penetration into the porous enamel and create a diffusion barrier inside the lesion. Resin infiltration technique was indicated mainly for the treatment of incipient caries. However, many clinicians used this technique for masking the developmental defects, specially for fluorosis and enamel hypoplasia lesions.
This lecture will evaluate our 10 years experience of the clinical use of the resin infiltration. It will evaluate again the resin infiltration indications and application techniques. In addition to the evaluation of its effieciency, aesthetic outcome and stability. The limitations of the resin infiltration also will be discussed in this lecture aiming to create a better understanding of this technique within the minimal invasive dentistry approach.
