e-SDF is an anti-microbial and re-mineralizing liquid clinically applied to control and arrest active dental caries and to stop hypersensitivity. It is a safe, painless alternative to traditional cavity drilling procedures with the Power of Silver and Fluoride. Silver acts as an antimicrobial agent that simultaneously strengthens the dentin. Fluoride is the active ingredient that puts a stop to tooth decay by re mineralising and helps prevent additional decay from appearing.
No need to drill or excavate the caries like traditional cavity treatments.
There’s no need to give anesthesia
