Silver Diamine Fluoride – Colorado Springs

Killing Cavities With Silver Diamine Fluoride

What Is Silver Diamine Fluoride?

Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) is a compound that helps fight tooth decay in children who are especially vulnerable to it. The silver helps fight harmful microbes in your child’s mouth while strengthening the dentin layer of their teeth, and the fluoride fights and prevents tooth decay.

SDF is applied quickly and painlessly during a regular dental visit. After the teeth are cleaned and dried, Dr. Holsteen applies it to the affected teeth. It takes a couple of minutes to cure, but we recommend a wait of at least an hour before eating or drinking afterward so the curing process can completely finish.

What Are The Benefits Of Silver Diamine Fluoride?

SDF is particularly effective for treating children who have severe early childhood caries, difficulty cooperating for dental treatment, or special needs. Some of the benefits of this technique include:

  • Painless
  • Non-invasive
  • Quick treatment
  • Cavity and decay prevention
  • Relief for tooth sensitivity

Dr. Holsteen Recommends Silver Diamine Fluoride

One of our top priorities at Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry is ensuring that every patient has the right tools they need to keep their teeth healthy, no matter what their situation is. If you would like to learn more about SDF treatment for your child, call 719-598-3502 or email us.

I've been seeing Dr. Holsteen since 1992! The staff is wonderful! They are friendly and they talk to you! They are not robots! (Not to mention they play my favorite oldies station on Pandora when I go in!) I love these professionals because they make you feel at home!
