Utilization of Silver Diamine Fluoride for Caries Arresting

Sahar Mahmoud Mushtaha, Abdullah Talab Al-titi

Abstract

The use of silver nitrate for the treatment and prevention of medical and dental infections dates back more than a century and forms the foundation of the antibacterial properties of silver compounds. Silver ions Ag+ destroy pathogens at concentration of 50 ppm. According to prospective study findings, Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is a more effective caries-prevention strategy than topical fluoride. Additionally, it appears that all WHO goals are met by the accessibility of a prevent cavities medication that is secure, efficient, effective, and fair. In this study, the efficiency of silver diamine fluoride (SDF) in avoiding and halting cavities in the primary teeth and irreversible first molars was assessed.
