Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF)
The use of Silver Diamine Fluoride in dentistry is well documented for its ability to stop decay noninvasively. Using Silver Diamine Fluoride is a conservative option to treat cavities in baby teeth.
What is Silver Diamine Fluoride?
Silver Diamine Fluoride, or SDF, is an FDA-approved antibiotic liquid that, when applied topically, can stop decay from progressing. While this treatment probably won’t prevent the need for a restoration in the future, it has been proven effective in stopping further decay until either the baby tooth is lost or a more permanent means of repair, like a filling or crown, can be performed.
