Non-Invasive Filling Comparison - Fluoridating, Infiltrating, Filling & Drilling Teeth

 

Innovative non-invasive fillings for the Microinvasive (Infiltrating) treatment is used in two main ways. The first is to minimise invasive treatment especially for areas between teeth using non-infiltrative methods. The second is the aesthetic treatment of front teeth for a number of applications, such as white spots, enamel changes and possibly changes caused by trauma.

1. Minimise invasive treatment

Proximal areas in between teeth are not only a problem when brushing. Areas between teeth are at risk but difficult to access. Caries can form here quite easily, which is not only difficult to detect, but also difficult for the dentist to reach physically. If there is a decay, traditional fillings are relatively invasive and lead to a large loss of healthy tooth structure. In cases of proximal caries, there is often an unfavourable ratio of healthy tooth to caries that must be removed.

2. Aesthetic treatment of front teeth

As air and water entrapment in the tooth has a lower refractive index than intact tooth structure, this leads to unaesthetic discolourations in the vestibular structure. We attempt to balance this difference and the final appearance blends in with the healthy enamel.

This innovative method is based on caries infiltration to fill the gap between prophylaxis and filling. This treatment optically blends in the lesion with the healthy enamel. The result is an aesthetic treatment of front teeth, where appearance plays an important role.

This method is also effective on cariogenic white spots, especially immediately after removing braces. Even brown spots, which have developed over a longer period of time, can be treated aesthetically, provided the surface has not cavitated.

Enamel changes

Enamel Changes to Teeth that can be treated

Cases of enamel changes like fluorosis were able to be treated successfully, particularly in mild to moderate instances.

Changes caused by trauma

Changes to teeth color caused by trauma may possibly be treated

Further enamel defects, such as those caused by trauma, can possibly be aesthetically improved. The success of the procedure is heavily dependent on how deep these defects lie within the tooth structure. The closer they are to the surface, the better the aesthetic improvement. This method of treatment is awaiting confirmation from clinical studies (2015).

Method

This is a gentle method for counteracting cariogenic white spots – with an aesthetic side effect. There is no unnecessary loss of healthy hard tissue.

Cariogenic acid attach the enamel and draw out minerals

Cariogenic acids attack the enamel and draw out minerals. The tooth becomes porous.

By sealing the pore system, acids can no longer penetrate into the lesion, thus stopping the progression of the caries at an early stage.
