Randomised control trial of effectiveness of silver fluoride on managing deciduous caries in remote Aboriginal communities

 

Overview

The Randomised control trial of effectiveness of silver fluoride on managing deciduous caries in remote Aboriginal communities study aims to find if silver fluoride and atraumatic restorative treatment (ART) are equally effective in managing untreated dental caries in the primary dentition, and to see if silver fluoride has an additional benefit of reducing future development of new dental caries relative to ART. The hope is that this is an effective intervention which is less traumatic than ART and uses fewer resources to stop existing carries, reduce the impact of caries, and preserve the functionality of deciduous (baby) teeth.
