Understanding Tooth Decay

Bacteria in our mouths feed on food particles, especially sugars and starches. As bacteria grows, it produces acids that erode protective enamel and cause tooth decay. Stages of tooth decay include:

  • Demineralization — Acids create tiny flaws in enamel that appear as white spots.
  • Enamel Breakdown — Spots turn brown as damage progresses.
  • Dentin Infection — Decay reaches inner tooth layers.
  • Removal & Filling — Traditional drilling excavates decay followed by a filling.

Nowadays, decay that is caught early while still localized in enamel can often be treated with infiltration versus drilling into healthy tooth structure.

What is Infiltration Treatment?

When white or brown spots indicate the early stages of tooth decay, infiltration treatment can be applied. During this treatment process, a dental resin is flowed into the compromised enamel before it reaches the dentin layer. This achieves several benefits:

  • Smoothes visible decay spots on the tooth surface
  • Stops the progression of damage and decay beneath the enamel layer
  • Avoids removing any healthy tooth structure

Infiltration is a major pediatric dentistry advance, stopping decay non-invasively before it threatens the tooth's interior. This painless approach prevents drilling healthy areas while getting your child back to a state of good oral health.
