The Treatment Procedure At the outset, your dentist may need to use the drill to remove hard substance, such as enamel or old fillings. This is a quick procedure with limited discomfort. Clinical studies show, in fact, that local anaesthetics could be avoided.
The dentist covers the cavity with Carisolv gel, waits for 30 seconds
for the carious dentine to soften and then starts carefully to scrape away the softened caries. Carisolv gel may be applied again and the gentle scraping repeated until the cavity is caries free. Finally, your dentist can inspect and fill it like any other cavity.
