Silver Diamine Fluoride Treatments for Kids and Teens

Silver Diamine Fluoride is an antimicrobial liquid that allows us to treat severe cavities in a quick, non-invasive manner. This material is placed to remineralize or save severely decayed teeth. This material needs to be placed in baby teeth that we are not sure of the restorability of, or if there are multiple areas of decay. The material will turn the decay black, as to seal it off from additional bacteria/decay. The SDF will be placed sometimes 2 times within a year and sometimes a filling can be placed upon it.
