Conservative Cavity Treatment in Fairfield, CA
The silver modified atraumatic restorative technique (SMART) is an alternative to traditional cavity filling. With conventional treatment, cavities require drilling before they are filled. Of course, this approach can cause significant anxiety and discomfort for children.
SMART is a minimally-invasive approach used in conjunction with silver diamine fluoride (SDF) therapy. Our dentists use a mercury-free composite resin filling and SDF to eliminate harmful bacteria and treat the area of decay. SMART is widely used in Europe and is gaining traction in the United States as clinicians realize the many benefits for patients that the technique can provide.
