By arresting and preventing caries, silver diamine fluoride (SDF) offers an alternate care path for patients for whom traditional restorative treatment is not immediately available. Current data from controlled clinical trials encompassing more than 3,900 children indicate that biannual application of SDF reduces progression of current caries and risk of subsequent caries. The purpose of this paper was to highlight the best evidence from systematic reviews and clinical trials for clinicians to consider the benefits, risks, and limitations as they implement silver diamine fluoride therapy on young children.
