Sometimes restoring a tooth isn’t possible. Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) is a compound that helps halt tooth decay in patients who are unable to accept dental treatment. SDF is applied quickly and painlessly without the use of anesthetic or drills. After the teeth are cleaned and dried, Dr. Jarvis applies it to the affected teeth. Because SDF is painless and quick, it can be a nice alternative for young, elderly, or special-needs patients.
One of our top priorities at Great Northern Dental Care is ensuring that every patient has the right tools they need to keep their teeth healthy, no matter what their situation is. If you would like to learn more about SDF treatment, call or text us at (406) 257-5696.
