SILVER DIAMINE FLUORIDE

SDF is a newly FDA approved, stronger fluoride that promotes remineralization and stops cavities from progressing. If applied before cavity development, it can prevent dental caries.

Recommended for patients who are:

  • More prone to cavity development.

  • Too young for cavity treatment.

  • Looking for a better cost-effective option to prevent and arrest cavities.

Is it safe?:

  • No adverse reports in +80 years of use.

  • SDF will stain only the cavity lesion black

  • The stain will disappear in about a week if it got on the gum, mouth, or skin. 

  • Children who are allergic to silver should not receive this treatment.
