Sometimes baby molars have cavities on them when the child is still a toddler (2-3 years old). If the tooth is not causing any pain or showing signs of nerve involvement, Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) can be used to help keep the decay from growing. In this example, SDF was placed twice on the 3 year old's cavity within a month and then filled over using a glass ionomer resin. No shots, anesthetic or drills were used.
