Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is the hottest topic in the dental industry right now!
What is SDF?
Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is a non-invasive treatment option for cavities, using a topical medicine that is painted on the tooth instead of a more invasive surgical (drill and fill) approach.
SDF is a colorless liquid, composed of silver and fluoride, which work together to stop present decay from progressing.
SDF could benefit a wide range of patients, especially for the young, fearful children.
Quick and painless
Avoid or delay more invasive restorations
Remineralizes your natural tooth structure
Permanently stains decay black
Not an option for deep cavities
SDF is a treatment for cavities, not a cure (same as a filling)
