Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF)
Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is a revolutionary treatment option for the management of tooth decay. This clear, anti-microbial liquid is applied onto an active area of tooth decay, arresting the cavity and strengthening the tooth in a fast, painless, and non-invasive manner. By arresting the cavity, SDF offers an alternate care strategy 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. It almost sounds too good to be true! There are also applications for adults in select situations. We are happy to offer SDF as a treatment option for the management of tooth decay – please ask our Board Certified Pediatric Dentists if you have any questions!
