Silver Diamine Fluoride: Journey from Silver bullet to Magic Bullet

Anusuya Mishra, Prasanna Sahoo, Prayas Ray, Santoshni Samal

Development of the latest advanced instruments, materials, and techniques has enabled the clinicians, a transition from G. V. Black’s Extension for prevention to the Prevention of extension approach in caries management. Although silver diamine fluoride (SDF), is not new but has recently gained tremendous popularity among clinicians globally due to its effectiveness in arresting the progression of carious lesions without the need for any aerosol procedure during this COVID 19 pandemic time. Silver diamine fluoride can be used topically directly on carious lesions which have been shown to arrest remaining decay, prevent dental caries, remineralize and harden leathery dentin leading to the dark color change. Since the management of dental caries with SDF is non-invasive and much comfortably performed, it can be a favorable means to treat dental caries in children, adults, and particularly in special health-care needs.
