Various studies in literature worldwide report high prevalence of Early Childhood caries (ECC). Conventional restorative methods for ECC are not always affordable or possible, as it requires patient cooperation for desirable outcome. Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) was first promoted in Japan in late 1960’s. It is painless and simple to use for young children or patients with special needs. When SDF is applied on carious lesions, the fluoride enhances remineralization and the silver ions act as an antibacterial agent and inhibit the growth of cariogenic biofilm. SDF also preserves the dentin collagen from further degradation. SDF at 38% has been used mostly in various countries.
