NYU Research Shows SDF Is a Game Changer
Research conducted at New York University (NYU) College of Dentistry showed that silver diamine fluoride (SDF) was as effective as dental sealants in caries prevention among children receiving care at a school-based dental clinic. The study, which included 3,000 children in grades kindergarten through third attending New York City public schools, found that the one-time application of SDF prevented 80% of caries lesions and arrested 50% of cavitated lesions. Results were published in JAMA Network Open. Click here to read more.
