What are the benefits of SDF?
SDF can be a simple and painless alternative for helping to preserve your child’s baby teeth. Some benefits are: the application is painless and quick (we use a paint brush to apply), it prevents the need for drilling, its effectiveness is immediate. SDF is not appropriate for every child, and please call us for a consult to see if your child is able to receive this new treatment. In cases where your child’s tooth decay is severe, other treatments are indicated in protecting and maintaining your child’s dental health.
Our goal is to improve and protect your child’s teeth with the most evidence-based treatments available. We will work with you to find the best treatment solution.
