What is Silver Diamine Fluoride?
An antimicrobial liquid that can be brushed on cavities to stop tooth decay — painlessly.
What does this fluid do to our teeth and cavities?
With silver diamine fluoride (SDF), it is now possible to reverse and arrest the cariogenic process, even if cavitations are present. Silver diamine fluoride kills the bacteria that cause decay.
Who would benefit from SDF treatment?
The fearful child, individuals living with a cognitive or physical impairment, dental phobia & those with financial or accessibility constraints that prevents them from seeking traditional dental treatment. Some individuals can only receive restorative care with general anesthesia or sedation and others are not good candidates for general anesthesia due to frailty or other medical complexity. SDF Treatment is easy to apply and does not require freezing or drilling. Interim Stabilization Therapy can also be combined with SDF treatment for optimal outcomes.
