Abstract
Introduction: The development of white spot lesions (WSL) is a challenging problem during the course of orthodontic treatment. Caries infiltration fills the gap between prophylaxis and filling.
Case Report: Radiograph was taken of early enamel and dentin lesion on proximal surface of molar. Caries lesion was detected on proximal surfaces of lower left first molar including enamel and outer part of dentin surface. The patient complains of tooth sensitivity to cold and sweet. ICON infiltration was applied for treatment of early enamel lesion. Radiograph was taken six months after resin infiltration and there was no visible lesion on proximal surface. Tooth sensitivity is gone, after ICON infiltration and it could be observed healing of early enamel and dentin lesion.
Conclusion: Resin infiltration could be useful to arrest the progress of early enamel lesion of molar's proximal surfaces.

Keywords: Caries lesion, Dental enamel, Resin infiltration, White spot lesion
