Silver Diamine Fluoride is an antimicrobial liquid that is used to treat cavities in a fast, non-invasive, affordable, and painless manner. The FDA approved SDF in 2014 and it became commercially available to dental professionals in 2015 as Advantage Arrest by Elevate Oral Care.


Compared to a traditional filling that requires drilling of the tooth structure and thus shots of local anesthetic, this treatment is non-invasive and more comfortable for the patient.  It is a liquid that is simply brushed on to the cavity that can stop current decay and also prevent new decay in the future.
