Because most people wouldn’t think metal would be capable of helping to stop decay, perhaps one of the most interesting, or relevant pieces of information, which is included within the article, is how silver diamine fluoride uses silver to kill the bacteria responsible for causing decay. Silver diamine fluoride is non-toxic, low cost, and the treatment is non-invasive.

Hurst Pediatric Dentistry wanted to use this article to bring particular attention to the subject of silver diamine fluoride. They feel they may have done this best in the following extract:

‘Silver diamine fluoride protects the outer layer of dentin while also working to combat decay. This treatment works best for children, but it is still effective for people of all ages. In addition to fighting tooth decay, the ADA states that silver diamine fluoride was cleared by the FDA to be used as a desensitizing agent, meaning it can also be applied to help people with sensitive teeth.’
