SDF (Silver Diamine Fluoride) in Upper West SideSilver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is a revolutionary treatment option for the management of tooth decay. It is a clear antimocrobial liquid that is painted onto an active area of decay, arresting the cavity strengthening the tooth in a fast, painless, non-invasive manner. By arresting caries, SDF offers an alternate care path for young, fearful, or pre-cooperative children for whom traditional treatment is not possible, often preventing the need for sedation, local anesthesia, fillings, and crowns. There are also applications for adolescents and adults in select situations. We are excited to offer SDF as a treatment option for the management of tooth decay – please ask our Boards Certified Pediatric Dentists if you have any questions!
