Silver Diamine Fluoride: Game Changer in Dental Public Health

A substantial part of the world’s population is affected by carious teeth, with the largest number of children affected. In susceptible, uninsured and financially poor groups , different lesions are more prevalent. An significant public health problem emerges from caries that are not handled for a very long period of time along with little use of the resources available in both developing and developed countries. Children have limited adaptive ability, and in some treatment procedures can also lead to difficulties. Therefore, in areas with limited access to oral health services such as school children, the need for an appropriate and inexpensive approach to the treatment of dental caries was required. Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is very much in demand nowadays as it can regulate the development of caries and is very less susceptible to technique. This method does not require the use of tools to excavate caries, though silver has many antimicrobial properties and fluoride helps And in remineralization.
