I view all the courses I can on silver diamine fluoride and use it daily in my work. I find patients want it used on them even if the possibility of staining because they understand black is better than caries infection. People want to be healthy this product helps people achieve that goal. As providers we need to educate people so they understand what this product can do and what patients can do for themselves to prevent cavities.
