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.
