Silver Diamine Fluoride Treatments Grow as Oral Health Trend, Westminster, Colorado

It’s easy to see why Silver Diamine Fluoride treatments are becoming increasingly popular among dental patients. First, these specialized treatments can help prevent decay from worsening and/or spreading to other teeth in the future. Because it’s a less expensive option than having a filling placed, many dental patients are interested in alternatives. Silver Diamine Fluoride treatments are also growing in popularity among patients who prefer to avoid the dental drill. 

How Does It Work?

The silver helps to strengthen teeth. The knowledgeable team at Smile Rockers, based in the heart of Westminster, CO, loves educating new patients on the process.

Who Is a Good Candidate?
