I first learned about Icon during a lecture in March 2009 before it was on the mark in the United States. The presenter discussed a new technique that treats incipient interproximal and facial lesions without surgical intervention. As a pediatric dentist that sees many preteens and teens with these types of lesions on permanent teeth, I was intrigued. If the product was clinically effective, it would give my partners and I the chance to offer our parents a treatment option in addition to active surveillance of incipient lesions or surgical intervention.
