My boy has some cavities on his molars that were seen on x-rays done for another procedure. The dentist recommended a new procedure called resin infiltration (DMG Icon) that involves NO drilling. Just an etching of the affected surfaces and filling them with this special resin. I looked online to see what is used in this resin. It has dimethacrylate which has some toxicity concerns, but then I have not found any filling material that is risk free. Glass ionomer releases fluoride because it is made of fluorosilicate.


Does anyone have any experience with this procedure? Appreciate your help!

I am bumping this up for you.  I don't have any experience with this procedure.
