Silver Diamine Fluoride: The Silver Lining in Kid’s Dentistry

A unique blend of silver, water, fluoride, and ammonia, SDF offers a plethora of dental advantages:

  • Cavity Arrest: SDF can halt the progression of cavities, making it an excellent choice for early-stage tooth decay.
  • Desensitizing Agent: SDF can alleviate tooth sensitivity, offering relief to those little teeth that react to cold or hot stimuli.

Considerations with SDF

While SDF offers numerous benefits:

  • It can cause darkening of the decayed areas, turning them black. This is a sign that the decay has been arrested.
  • It’s essential to understand that SDF doesn’t restore tooth structure or function. In some cases, further restorative treatments may be required.
