A new way to treat early tooth decay and remove white spots without drilling

Micro-invasive technology, no freezing or drilling & one quick patient visit

At Gunitskiy Family Dentistry we encourage our patients to prevent cavities rather than fixing them after they are formed

Prevention Is Key

No more "wait and see" until it's time to "drill and fill."

Until now, dental professionals have had only two choices to treat early cavities: use fluoride in the very early stages - or "wait and see" until it's time to "drill and fill." Dr. Gunitskiy utilizes a revolutionary new approach to treat small cavities. This micro-invasive technology fills and reinforces demineralized enamel without drilling or freezing, up to the first third of dentin (D1).

ICON: The breakthrough caries infiltrant

Resin infiltration is a minimally invasive restorative treatment for white-spot lesions, incipient interproximal cavities and certain congenital hypocalcified enamel lesions. Incipient cavities are associated with subsurface enamel porosities caused by a cyclical imbalance between demineralization and remineralization of the enamel, resulting from poor hygiene and associated plaque, bacteria and acids.

Resin Infiltration revolutionary infiltration system has been shown to effectively block early-stage cavities that live in between teeth, also known as interproximal cavities. Now, there is a less-invasive solution to treat these early caries in just one visit!

Cavity infiltration fills the gap between Fluoride and fillings

Areas between the teeth are not only a problem when brushing, but also for the dentist to reach physically having to remove more tooth structure than if the cavity was on the front surface of the tooth.

Dr. Gunitskiy can effectively stop the progression of cavities that x-rays show have not advanced farther than the outer third of the dentin (E1-D1).

If x-rays show the lesion has advanced past the outer third of the dentin, treatment with Resin Infiltrant is no longer possible. In this case, traditional cavity removal therapy is required
