NAHUELHUAIQUE FUENTEALBA, P.; DIAZ MELENDEZ, J.  y  SANDOVAL VIDAL, P.. Resin infiltration: an effective and minimally invasive treatment for the treatment of non-cavitated white lesions. Narrative review. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2017, vol.33, n.3, pp.181-186. ISSN 2340-3152.

Introduction: Caries is a process in which the mineral gain of the dental tissue is less than the loss of them, which leads to the initial formation of an opaque and white lesion, which in the beginning will not cavitate and if the process Will continue to cavitate. There are several treatments to treat these non-cavitated white lesions among which there are infiltrating resins. ICON trade name is indicated for D1 or R3 lesions according to radiographic detection criteria (radiolucency up to the external third of the dentin) and white spot lesions on free vestibular surfaces. There is a variety of scientific evidence that supports its use, both in interproximal treatment and in the treatment of free surfaces. Conclusions: The use of infiltrating resin therapy for the management of interproximal incipient lesions as well as treatment of free vestibular lesions (post orthodontic treatment) is supported by scientific evidence. Studies have shown that the use of RI to stop the progression of non cavitated carious lesions is encouraging. This suggests that IR is a promising non invasive technique. Available scientific evidence also shows that resin infiltration significantly improves the clinical appearance of vestibular LBNCs and reduces their size. However, high-quality, long-term clinical trials are needed to confirm the efficacy of IR in arresting non-cavitated lesions in both temporal and permanent teeth. In particular, in order to determine the long-term benefits.
