Our caring pediatric dentists may recommend silver diamine fluoride treatment to help halt and prevent tooth decay. This treatment is especially helpful for:

  • Children with severe early childhood cavities
  • Young children who struggle to receive treatment
  • Children with special needs
  • Children who cannot receive all their care in one visit

What Is Silver Diamine Fluoride

Silver diamine fluoride is an FDA-approved treatment to help control and halt cavities. It is made from two main ingredients – silver and fluoride. The silver in the liquid acts as an antimicrobial agent, strengthening the underlying protective layer of the teeth, while the fluoride works to halt tooth decay and strengthen your child’s teeth against future decay. This treatment can also be used to treat hypersensitive teeth.

Benefits of Silver Diamine Fluoride

Benefits of silver diamine fluoride include:

  • A fast, painless and noninvasive treatment
  • Reduced need for restorative treatment in the future
  • Prevention of additional tooth decay
  • Elimination of harmful pathogenic organisms (bacteria)
  • Immediate reduction in tooth sensitivity
  • Hardening of dentin to make it more resistant to abrasion, acids and other decay-causing factors
  • SDF will mark and stain cavities black
