Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) is a compound that helps fight tooth decay in children who are especially vulnerable to it. The silver helps fight harmful microbes in your child’s mouth while strengthening the dentin layer of their teeth, and the fluoride fights and prevents tooth decay.
SDF is applied quickly and painlessly during a regular dental visit. After the teeth are cleaned and dried, our doctors apply it to the affected teeth. It takes a couple of minutes to cure, but we recommend a wait of at least an hour before eating or drinking afterward so the curing process can completely finish.
SDF is particularly effective for treating children who have severe early childhood caries, difficulty cooperating for dental treatment, or special needs. Some of the benefits to this technique include:
One of our top priorities at The Exchange Dental Group is ensuring that every patient has the right tools they need to keep their teeth healthy, no matter what their situation is. If you would like to learn more about SDF treatment for your child, call (212) 422-9229 or email us.
