Effective Fluoride Treatment in Ontario, CA to Possibly Stop Decay
Fluoride is crucial for healthy, strong teeth – particularly in childhood. This is why toothpaste contains fluoride and why many municipalities add fluoride to the public water supply. Pediatric dentists also utilize fluoride in the form of rinses and varnishes to protect young teeth against decay.
But some children suffering from cavities need more than the usual fluoride treatment. At Ontario Kids N Braces, we provide silver diamine fluoride (SDF) to those patients. SDF is a topical medication applied to the teeth. It can stop shallow cavities and even prevent further progression of decay with preventive measures.
Additionally, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved SDF as a treatment for tooth sensitivity.
