Abstract
Background: Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) is a solution containing ionic silver, fluoride, and ammonia, which arrests carious lesions' progress and prevents the development of future caries. The silver particle extends into the dentin tubules and could create bonding problems for subsequent composite resin restorations placed over SDF-treated darkened tooth structures. This study aimed to assess knowledge about SDF and to educate the students in levels 11 and 12 and in terns about the SDF.
Methodology: The study is based on a designed questionnaire, which contained 7–15 questions regarding the knowledge of SDF, which was then distributed to the targeted undergraduate dental students (levels 11 and 12) and interns via papers and an online survey (Survey Monkey)
Results: The results show that knowledge about SDF in Riyadh Elm University among students (levels 11 and 12) and interns were low. A total of 252 respondents were participated in the survey. The majority (79.4%) of them were ≤25 years old. Furthermore, 33.7% of participants were from level 11, 42.9% from level 12, and 23.4% were interns.
Conclusion: In summary, SDF appears to be a useful immediate treatment for children who can receive traditional restorative treatment for dental decay. It helps caries arrest and prevent new lesions on the teeth, where it is applied and is a minimal intervention treatment that is safe and affordable. Given the preceding, it might be expected that SDF will be wide ly implemented for caries control to meet the patient's needs.
