Silver Diamine Fluoride - How to prevent?

Why is SDF Recommended?

For your child who has severe early childhood caries (SECC) and needs early intervention to prevent the disease from progressing, SDF provides the quickest way to get the affected teeth or difficult-to-treat caries managed in one visit. For best results, application may be recommended every 6-12 months.

SDF may be an alternative to traditional treatment for uncooperative and fearful children.

What Are the Benefits of SDF?

  • SDF has been proven to be the most effective in stopping tooth decay
  • It is non-intimidating and does not involve the use of dental drills or injection
  • The procedure is fast, painless and easy
  • SDF relieves sensitivity
  • Fewer follow-up visits as compared to other forms of fluoride
