These are evidence-based procedures that are used to treat cavities in a less invasive way.
Silver Diamine Fluoride: We understand that for some children who are too young to cooperate or with high anxiety we may have to consider alternate options. This is an “antibiotic liquid” that is used to stop the decay from getting bigger. It does not eliminate the need for future treatment but is helpful while we wait until your child is ready for treatment. Regular dental visits during this time is important.
Hall Crowns: We offer this alternate option to treat cavities. This procedure does not need any numbing or drilling but provides an effective method to contain decay. Speak to the dentist to see if your child meets the criteria for this kind of treatment.
