Allen's Top Silver Diamine Fluoride Center

Silver Diamine Fluoride

SDF Or Silver Diamine Fluoride

Dr. Elizabeth Kamali and Dr. Sal Taiym and their team can discuss with you if Silver Diamine Fluoride treatment is right for your child.

WHAT IS SILVER DIAMINE FLUORIDE?

Silver Diamine Fluoride, or SDF, is an FDA-approved antibiotic liquid that, when applied topically, can stop decay from progressing. While this treatment probably won’t prevent the need for a restoration in the future, it has been proven effective in stopping further decay until either the baby tooth is lost, or a more permanent means of repair, like a filling or crown, can be performed.

THE PROCEDURE

After the treatment area is isolated and dried, the doctor applies the Silver Diamine Fluoride to the decay using a small brush. Then, a fluoride-infused sealer is placed over the Silver Diamine Fluoride so it can work its magic undisturbed.

A follow-up appointment about a week later makes sure the Silver Diamine Fluoride is working, and a second application is applied.

After your child’s procedure, daily home treatment with a fluoride rinse (like ACT) is recommended, as is twice daily brushing with a fluoridated toothpaste.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT

After your child’s appointment, you may notice some discoloration where the SDF made contact with the surrounding tissue of the gum, skin or an existing restoration. The decayed area where the Silver Diamine Fluoride was applied will also turn dark. This is an indication that the SDF is working and is perfectly natural.

Silver Diamine Fluoride is a safe, FDA-approved, effective way to stop decay. However, if your child has a silver sensitivity, please let us know before their appointment.

We’ve been going to Jupiter Star Dentistry for over 8 years now. The office staff is always pleasant and friendly. Dr. Taiym, Dr. Kamali, and Dr. Paradiso have all seen my 3 children. They are very kind, patient, and gentle with my kids. They are also very honest and trustworthy when it comes to treatment plans. I would 100% recommend them.

Today was our first visit and I am so impressed. At our previous dentist office I felt like a number, moving through the system. Even though we had been there for years, they still call my son by his legal name which, he does not go by. When we walked in the door at Jupiter, the receptionist said “you must be____” and immediately called him by the name he goes by. We were given a quick tour of the office and I was even able to meet with Dr. Kamali, before we even began, in order to express any concerns or questions I may have. Meanwhile my son met and was Xrayed by Megan, the incredible dental hygienist. She took the time to explain everything to him before she did it, which helped with his nervous energy for sure. Overall, such a great experience. I couldn’t recommend this dental practice enough to other parents looking for an overall experience.

Everyone is super friendly. The office is very clean and kid friendly. My kids love the video games and tv's above the dental chairs. My older one is in ortho and that experience has been great too. They both look forward to their dental visits and often ask when it's time to go back!
