What is Silver Diamine Fluoride?


Silver Diamine Fluoride is a non-invasive substance that can help provide relief from dentinal hypersensitivity, as well treat cavities in children, particularly ones that have baby teeth. It also has potential to be effective in treating root caries in older patients. A benefit to SDF is that it is cheaper and faster than drilling and filling, however a downside is that any decayed areas of the tooth can stain black, and the patient may get a metallic aftertaste. SDF is still being studied and tested for its efficacy, however it shows very promising results.
