The dental caries starts commonly its demineralization process on the dental enamel surfaces presenting opaque and white colors called to this stage as a white spot lesion (WSL) [2].
Tagami, "White spot lesion remineralization by sugar-free chewing gum containing bio-available calcium and fluoride: A double-blind randomized controlled trial," Journal of Dentistry, vol.
The clinical man- ifestation of early enamel caries is presented clinically as White spot lesion (WSL).
(14) According to Murphy, Willmote, Rodd, the mean reduction in white spot lesion size was 83%..
Over time, the buried decay will grow as more and more mineral is lost from this "white spot lesion." But its growth is invisible to the dentist, Silverstone says, because the actual tooth surface is hard and apparently healthy.
The procedure, in using Icon, is as follows: the surface area of the white spot lesion is eroded with a 15% HCl gel.
When white spot lesion detection as well as early identification of non-cavitated lesions are included in the clinical diagnostic process, the prevention of primary dental caries and a timely non-operative treatment become possible, thus effectively averting the progression towards cavitated lesions and allowing a short-term control of the disease, with long-term effects.
Resin infiltration technique has been used in cases of enamel discoloration arising from developmental defects (hypocalcification, fluorosis, and molar-incisive hypomineralization) or white spot lesions (WSL) as a minimally invasive treatment that aims to mask enamel discolorations.
