Silver Diamine Fluoride

Very interesting stuff even if it is not very new – it has been around for over 70 years but was just approved by the FDA in this country in 2014.

I think this is something every dentist and every hygienist should be thinking about for all young children and senior citizen.  It is now used routinely by students at UCSF Dental School.
