A Revolutionary Approach to Cavity Prevention

Dr. Paul Cantelmi and his team at Bay View Pediatric Dentistry proudly offer Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) as an innovative solution for cavity prevention and treatment. Comprising silver, SDF effectively combats bacteria while harnessing the power of fluoride to prevent and arrest cavities. This advanced treatment minimizes the need for frequent interventions, showcasing its superior efficacy in reducing cavity growth.

SDF is not only a preventive measure but also a potent tool in halting cavity development, even after it has taken root. This makes it a valuable option for patients seeking a less invasive alternative to traditional drilling procedures. It’s important to consult with Dr. Cantelmi to determine if SDF is the right treatment for your child. While it is a highly effective option, patients with advanced gum disease, extensive tooth decay, or oral ulcerations may require alternative approaches tailored to their specific needs. Trust in Dr. Cantelmi’s expertise to provide the most suitable and effective dental solutions for your child’s unique oral health journey.

SDF is not for everyone, so it is important to speak with your dentist about whether it is the right treatment for you. Patients with advanced gum disease, tooth decay, or oral ulcerations should not use SDF. For more information about our services or to schedule a consultation, contact us today at (718) 836-9200.
