Silver Diamine Fluoride
January 30, 2018
A new way to approach oral health has arrived to the United States in recent years – silver diamine fluoride (SDF). While the use of SDF in the United States is fairly recent, with it only being on the U.S. market since April 2015, it has been used in other counties such as Germany, China and Japan for over 80 years in the treatment of tooth decay. Silver diamine fluoride is now also recommended by The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) in treating cavities in primary teeth of pediatric and special needs patients. Since treatment is a quick, painless way to prevent the further spread of tooth decay, silver diamine fluoride may be an ideal solution for your family.
