More About Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF)

Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is a topical medication that’s used in pediatric dentistry to halt the progression of tooth decay and prevent further dental cavities. It’s a colorless liquid composed of silver, water, fluoride, and ammonia. The silver acts as an antimicrobial agent, the fluoride helps rebuild the minerals in the tooth, and the ammonia stabilizes the solution for maximum effectiveness.

The application of SDF is a quick, painless, and non-invasive procedure, which makes it an excellent option for children, especially those who are very young or particularly anxious about dental procedures. However, one downside is that SDF blackens the decayed area of the tooth, which can be a cosmetic concern.

It’s important to note that while SDF can stop decay, it doesn’t restore the shape and function of the tooth, so additional restorative procedures might be necessary in some cases. As with any dental treatment, the use of SDF should be discussed with a dental professional to determine if it’s the best choice for a child’s specific needs.
