Silver Diamine Fluoride Dubai

Silver Diamine Fluoride

Pain-free cavity treatment for children

As parents, we want our children to have a positive experience at the dentist. But when it comes to treating children’s cavities, parents often look for an alternative to the usual drill and fill method.

Simple and non-invasive cavity treatment

Silver Diamine Fluoride or SDF is a simple, straightforward and non-invasive way to help prevent tooth cavities (also known as decay or caries) from forming, growing, or spreading to other teeth. It is a liquid solution made of silver, which helps kill bacteria, and fluoride, which helps the teeth rebuild the materials they’re made of (also known as remineralization).

Benefits of Silver Diamine Fluoride

Quick, painless application

Our pediatric dentist uses a liquid form of SDF containing at least 38 percent of the SDF solution. The application of SDF itself is quick and painless and can be done on multiple teeth in just one appointment.

Are there any contraindications or side effects?

Silver Diamine Fluoride is widely considered by dentists to be safe, even on young children. It shouldn’t be used for patients who have silver allergy, advanced gum disease, or major tooth decay that has exposed the soft tissue of the tooth beneath the enamel. The only common side effect of SDF noted in hundreds of studies is black staining around the area where SDF is applied.
