Silver Diamine Fluoride, or SDF, is an FDA-approved antibiotic liquid that, when applied to active tooth decay, can stop the decay from progressing further. SDF has been proven effective in ceasing the growth of decay until either the baby tooth is lost, or a more permanent means of treatment can be completed. If you would like to learn more, Dr. Aaron can explain how it may be a good option for your child if he/she has dental treatment needs. Dr. Aaron is one of only a handful of pediatric dentists who use SDF, when needs warrant, in the Atlanta area.

Silver Diamine Fluoride is a safe, FDA-approved, effective way to stop the growth of decay. If your child has a silver sensitivity, please let us know.
