During your SDF treatment appointment, our dental team at Chinook Smiles will carefully apply the SDF solution to the affected tooth with proper isolation. The procedure is quick and painless, and there is no need for drilling or injections. The liquid solution is applied with precision, ensuring that it effectively reaches and treats the decayed area.
It is strongly recommended that this application is repeated in two weeks, as research as shown that this second application greatly compounds the decay-fighting effect of SDF. Ideally, in three months’ time, the treated area is re-evaluated to determine whether the cavity has been arrested fully, or whether more treatment is recommended.
