What is SDF ?
SDF will stain the cavity on the tooth black. It will only stain the cavity part of the tooth black, but not the healthy part of the tooth. Some parents are concerned with their kids having black teeth. Please note, this is to buy us time until the patient is older and more cooperative for a filling or crown to cover the black part. If your child moves and accidently gets SDF on their gums or skin during the procedure, it can leave a stain. This is temporary and will go away.
SDF will stain the cavity black. When placed on teeth in the back of the mouth, you may not even notice it.
