Highly Preventive Fluoride Treatment
Prevention is an important part of adults’ and children’s dental care, and in many cases, fluoride treatment is a significant benefit to preventive dental care. Fluoride is a mineral that bonds to the weakened mineral strands of tooth enamel, strengthening the barrier that protects teeth from harmful oral bacteria.
In addition to the mineral, fluoride, SDF includes water – a natural antibacterial agent – a silver, which also successfully neutralizes harmful, cavity-causing oral bacteria. By utilizing SDF as part of your preventive treatment, you can significantly reduce your risks of needing more extensive restorative treatment.

The Benefits of SDF
Because SDF combines the dual benefits of strengthening weakened tooth enamel and actively neutralizing harmful bacteria, it offers a higher rate of successful cavity prevention than traditional fluoride treatment. It’s also safe and easy to apply, making it beneficial for patients of all ages.
If you’re at an increased risk of cavity development, or if you require treatment to address a cavity that’s already developed, then speak with us during your visit to determine if you can benefit from SDF treatment.
