Description

White Spot Lesions: Can We Do Something?

The development of white spot lesions is a risk associated with orthodontic treatment in patients with poor oral hygiene. This presentation will focus on the roles of the orthodontist, the general dentist and the patient in promoting and maintaining good oral hygiene. In addition, research findings on the effectiveness of products will be discussed with a focus on their benefits, limitations and applications.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the roles of the orthodontist, the general dentist and the patient in promoting and maintaining adequate oral hygiene
  • Identify various methods of fluoride delivery systems to help minimize white spot lesions during orthodontic treatment
  • Establish post-orthodontic treatment options to improve the esthetics of demineralized enamel


Resin Infiltration for Treatment of White Spot Lesions

Challenges for patients in maintaining effective oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment often lead to enamel demineralization and the formation of white spot lesions. While a number of approaches have been advocated for prevention of white spot lesions, having a reliable means to manage white spot lesions that also conserves tooth structure would be a valuable asset for orthodontists. This presentation will focus on the use of IconĀ® infiltration as a restorative approach aimed at minimizing and potentially eliminating the visibility of white spot lesions. This presentation will review factors involved in applying the resin infiltration technique and results of recent investigations into the esthetic changes achieved.

Learning Objectives:

  • Apply resin infiltration as a method for improving the esthetics of white spot lesions
  • Appreciate the outcomes of research on the esthetic results of resin infiltration for the treatment of white spot lesions
