When it comes to the oral health of our young ones, it’s always best to be at the forefront of modern solutions.
One solution that’s making waves in the realm of pediatric dentistry is silver diamine fluoride, commonly referred to as SDF. A breakthrough in dental care, SDF serves as a potent caries-arresting medicine designed specifically to slow the progression of cavities in teeth.
At Spring Creek Pediatric Dentistry, we pride ourselves on being pioneers in adopting the latest and most effective treatments.
Dr. Kennedy, a pillar in our dental community, was among the very first pediatric dental providers in our vicinity to recognize the potential of SDF and introduce it in a clinical setting.
Over the years, he has accrued extensive experience and hands-on knowledge about the product. More importantly, he has witnessed first-hand the transformative success stories associated with its use.
What’s particularly notable about this treatment is its non-invasive nature. Instead of jumping straight to traditional, often daunting, surgical methods to manage cavities, SDF offers a gentler approach.
With the aid of this exceptional medicine, countless young patients have been spared from immediate dental surgeries, enjoying a more relaxed and less stressful dental experience.
This not only helps in the short term, but can foster a lifelong positive attitude toward dental visits and care. It is an especially good solution for young children, as the sound or drills and the experience of filling cavities can lead to fear.
However, as with many treatments, SDF isn’t a one-size-fits-all option.
Depending on the size, depth, and location of the cavity, silver diamine fluoride may require multiple applications to get the desired outcome. But, rest assured, each application is aimed at ensuring the maximum protection and health for your child’s teeth.
