Proudly Serving Watertown, NY & Surrounding Communities
Fluoride treatments have been proven to help prevent tooth decay in both children and adults. Watertown Pediatric Dentistry has helped many children in Watertown, NY and the surrounding area protect their teeth with fluoride treatments. We use Silver Diamine Fluoride, which is an antimicrobial treatment that remedies infections that cause tooth decay. This preventative treatment also helps reduce sensitivity to hot, cold, and sweets.
Silver Diamine Fluoride is FDA approved and provides pain relief to our patients. The best benefit is it requires no needle or drilling, which helps ease any anxiety our SHCN patients might have. This is especially great for children who haven’t lost their primary (baby) teeth yet, as save the tooth for eating, speaking, smiling and being a placeholder for permanent teeth.

- Provides pain relief
