Does your child have cavities? Say no more! At Happy Grins Pediatric Dentistry, we are proud to offer Silver Diamine Fluoride as a treatment option for the management of tooth decay!
Silver Diamine Fluoride is a revolutionary treatment option for the management of tooth decay. It is an FDA-approved, antimicrobial liquid that is painted onto an active area of decay, arresting the cavity and strengthening the tooth in a fast, painless, non-invasive manner.
By arresting caries, SDF offers an alternate care path for young, fearful, or pre-cooperative children for whom traditional treatment is not possible, often preventing the need for sedation and local anesthesia. There are also applications for adolescents in select situations.
Treatment with Silver Diamine Fluoride will not eliminate the need for restorative dentistry to repair function or aesthetics and is not ideal for severe cavities which may involve the nerve of the teeth.
This liquid takes 1 minute to apply with no noise, no drilling, and at the same time it kills the bacteria that cause decay.
We know the importance of securing a bright dental future for your child. He or she will be able to smile like never before with our gentle touch approach! Contact us today to learn more!
