An anxiety-free solution to cavities

If you think your child has cavities, don’t worry — you have options to help them recover their healthy smile. One of our favorite treatments is Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF), a non-invasive, quick, and effective way to treat cavities and prevent further decay, especially in children with baby teeth.

SDF is a topical liquid solution that is applied directly to the surface of your child’s tooth. This means there’s no need to use needles or drills — ideal for children who have trouble sitting still! SDF solution includes Fluoride, which strengthens the tooth’s enamel and fights bacteria, and silver, which treats and prevents decay.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is my child a good candidate for SDF cavity treatment?

Because SDF treatment dyes the treated area a black or dark gray color, they are mostly recommended when the cavity is located in a baby tooth (since they will eventually fall out).

If your child has one or more cavities in their permanent teeth, Dr. Tesoriero may recommend other options, like fillings and crowns.

Other reasons why Dr. Tesoriero may advise other options are:

  • Your child is allergic to silver
  • Your child has gingivitis or other ulcerative condition

How can I tell if my child has tooth decay?

Not sure if your child has cavities? Keep an eye out for the following signs:

  • Tooth pain
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Dark areas on one or more teeth

If you notice one or more of these symptoms, book an appointment for cavity treatment in Middletown today!

How long does this procedure take?

SDF cavity therapy is a quick and non-invasive treatment. It only takes a few minutes!

Why do I need to treat cavities in baby teeth?

It’s a common misconception that cavities in baby teeth don’t need to be treated. However, leaving cavities untreated can have a variety of negative consequences for a child’s well-being:

  • Damage their emerging permanent teeth
  • Impact their eating habits
  • Affect their self-esteem and school performance
  • Cause problems related to speech development
  • Lead to infections in the mouth & other parts of the body
