Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is an FDA approved liquid design to fight incipient tooth decay. SDF is colorless, composed of silver and fluoride. It is a non-invasive cavity-fighting technique.  It is a valuable therapy which may be included as part of a caries management plan for patients. Incipient caries lesions treated with SDF usually turn black and hard. Stopping the caries process in all targeted lesions may take several applications of SDF, and reapplication may be necessary to sustain arrest.
