Questions about West Orange SDF dental treatment

Why choose SDF treatment for my child?

SDF cavity treatment stands out because it’s a non-invasive, painless way to stop cavities in their tracks. SDF is applied directly to the cavity, killing bacteria and preventing further decay. It’s especially beneficial for patients who might fear dental procedures or have difficulty sitting through long appointments. With SDF, your child can enjoy a stress-free visit and a healthier smile.

How does SDF treatment work?

SDF is a liquid solution. When applied to a cavity, it immediately starts working by stopping the decay and preventing further damage. The process is quick, usually requiring only a few minutes, and there’s no need for drilling or removing tooth structure.

What to expect during an SDF treatment visit?

One of our dentists will first clean the affected tooth and the surrounding area. Then, the SDF solution will be carefully applied to the cavity using a small brush or dropper. The solution dries quickly, and your child can resume normal activities immediately after the appointment. It’s a quick, hassle-free process that leaves your child’s teeth stronger and more resistant to decay.

How should I prepare my child for SDF treatment?

There’s no need for any special preparation, but it’s always helpful to arrive at the appointment with a positive attitude to keep your child relaxed and comfortable.
