Silver diammine fluoride (SDF) is a caries-arresting agent for dentine lesions. The study published in the Journal of Dentistry investigated the effect of application frequency of SDF when used with glass ionomer cement (GI) for remineralizing carious dentine.

Freshly extracted human posterior teeth with advanced caries were used. After superficial removal of infected dentine, single (G3), double (G4), triple (G5) applications of SDF (Advantage Arrest SDF 38%) followed by a layer of GI (GC Fuji IX GP) were compared to no treatment (negative control-G2), and GI only (G1). All teeth were stored in artificial saliva solution for 2-weeks after the final treatment. Micro-computed X-ray tomography (NSI) scans were obtained at each stage and analyzed.

One or two applications of SDF before placement of GI, were effective in remineralizing advanced dentine lesions, while additional applications, when combined with GI, did not demonstrate additional benefit in this study.

One or two applications of SDF followed by GI coverage could remineralize advanced dentine caries in the presence of artificial saliva. This procedure carries potential in the treatment of difficult lesions where conventional restorations would require significant tooth structure removal through traumatic procedures.
