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.

PROS

Quick and painless
Non-Invasive
Relieves sensitivity
Avoid or delay more invasive restorations
Remineralizes your natural tooth structure

CONS

Permanently stains decay black
Not an option for deep cavities
SDF is a treatment for cavities, not a cure (same as a filling)
