Marietta No Drill Restoration
At Gilreath Dental Associates in Marietta, we strive to provide exceptional restorative and implant dentistry in the most conservative manner possible. One way we do this is by actively addressing small decay areas in teeth before they grow into larger areas that need full blown fillings. Dr. Gilreath uses ICON, a new patented process that infiltrates resin into small “incipient” decay lesions in teeth. The process requires no drilling or anesthesia and is completely conservative since it does not remove any tooth structure.

As you can see in this animation, decay travels from the outside of the tooth into the first layer (called the enamel). If it is stopped at this layer, it will not proceed into the middle layer (the dentin). Many dentist have a “let’s watch it and see what happens” attitude for these small lesions. At Gilreath Dental Associates, we are more conservative and treat the offending decay before it can progress into the middle part of the tooth (where it would have to be drilled out and a filling applied to the tooth).
