Abstract

Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is a revolutionary approach to combating caries in a non-invasive manner. Since its 2014 FDA clearance in the United States and a widely publicized 2016 feature in the New York Times, there has been tremendous interest surrounding the use of SDF from patients and dentists. Learn the principles of case selection, informed consent, treatment planning, and a clinical protocol for SDF. Learn how to restore cavities in a quick, effective, and painless way using SDF and Glass Ionomer Cement, known as Silver Modified Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (SMART). Find out how offering minimally-invasive options like SDF and SMART can attract new patients, improve patient satisfaction, and increase internal marketing and word of mouth referrals to your practice, while improving oral health and increasing access to care.
