What Is Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF)?

Comprised only of fluoride, silver, ammonia, and water, silver diamine fluoride is a painless liquid treatment for individual teeth. When brushed directly onto a cavity, it will act quickly to help halt the spread of decay and prevent further damage to the tooth. It can also be used as a preventive measure against future cavities.

It’s important to keep in mind that SDF can blacken and discolor parts of the tooth, and your pediatric dentist will need to keep monitoring the affected area after application. However, if the cavity is found on a baby tooth or in the back reaches of the mouth, SDF treatment can be an easy and non-invasive way to delay tooth decay while your young child is still growing.

Ideal for Young and Special Needs Children

Because silver diamine fluoride is so easy to apply, it’s often recommended for very young children, or for children with developmental disabilities. Unlike a standard cavity filling procedure, it requires no anesthetic, sedation, or drilling, making it perfect for children who have a hard time sitting still. It’s also a great option when cavities are discovered on developing permanent teeth, as this will help to prevent further destruction and sensitivity.

Here are a few of the main advantages to using silver diamine fluoride:

  • Kills any pathogens
  • Prevents cavities
  • Limits the spread of tooth decay
  • Easy and pain-free procedure
  • Cost-effective

Stopping cavities is important, even on baby teeth. With SDF treatment, you won’t have to worry about your child’s cavity expanding any further. You’ll have peace of mind, knowing that your child’s teeth will stay healthy and clean!
