Is there a magic potion that you can take that will make cavities go away? Why yes, yes there is, and I can’t believe you haven’t heard of it yet. Everyone is talking about it. Silver diamine fluoride was first used for hypersensitivity, but now many dentists are using it for caries control management. No drilling and no filling. Some people reported staining, but this could be reduced with a follow up application of potassium iodide. When factoring in the price per application and realizing a 75% reduction in both caries and prevention and progression, I can see why everyone is talking about it. At this price point I can see why so many are flocking to this material over formocresol.
