A Breakthrough in Minimally Invasive Dentistry

CariSolv, is a unique method for removing caries effectively while leaving healthy dental tissue intact1. CariSolv enables a minimal invasive treatment that selectively softens necrotic tissue in affected dentine and preserves healthy tissue1. CariSolv softens demineralized carious dentine prior to mechanical removal during chemo-mechanical minimal invasive treatment of patients diagnosed with caries1. The procedure provides selective removal of carious dentine and saves tooth substance, causes less pain, and better dentine surface for bonding procedures.

CariSolv is a Swedish innovation and it is a pioneering, effective, tissue friendly product based on a buffered hypochlorite technology, a unique technology composed of a gel (carboxy methylcellulose, sodium chloride and amino acids) and transparent liquid (water and sodium hypochlorite).

How does it work?

CariSolv softens the affected dentine allowing for easy removal of affected dentine whilst leaving healthy tissue intact1.

  1. If necessary open the cavity using a conventional bur
  2. Apply CariSolv directly into the cavity. After 30 seconds the carious dentine has softened
  3. Remove the softened, carious tissue using a hand excavator or a minimally invasive bur
  4. Rinse and blow the cavity dry for inspection

The cavity is free of caries and traditional filling treatment can commence.
