Although silver products have been used to treat caries in other countries for decades, a lack of formal education about them has contributed to misconceptions about their efficacy after silver diamine fluoride (SDF) received FDA clearance in the United States. As an early adopter of silver diamine fluoride, I would like to shed some light on these common misconceptions.
