Dental Caries remains a rigorous oral health problem amongst the population and its impact in terms of pain, impairment of function and oral health-related quality of life. Dental phobia, financial constraints, appointment scheduling difficulties, and transportation issues are among the significant barriers to proper dental care.
Conventional management of the carious lesions follows the removal of the carious tooth structure and the placement of an appropriate restorative material. Consequently, minimal invasive dentistry (MID), which aims at maintenance of the sound tooth structure using non-invasive techniques, has replaced the usual strategies.
Most recently, Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) had recently gained attention by oral health professionals globally due to its effectiveness in arresting the progression and prevention of the carious lesions. Originally, SDF had have been introduced in the dentistry in the early 19th century and it’s been started refocusing more recently by the dental fraternity. SDF allows arresting remaining decay, remineralizing and hardening leathery dentin leading to the dark color change. SDF is applied directly to carious lesions, to arrest and prevent dental caries. Since the management of dental caries with SDF is non-invasive and much contentedly performed, it can be a favorable means to treat carious teeth.
