Carrolene Langpoklakpam, Natasha Gambhir*, Nidhi Gupta, Rashi Singh, Divya Singh
Objectives: The purpose of this article is to emphasise the importance of the novel Nano Silver Fluoride against dental caries. Data/ Source: The searches were carried out on Medline/PubMed, Scopus, and the cross references were checked. Paper Selection: Original research and reviews were included. Papers, abstracts, and posters presented at conferences were not chosen. Conclusion: Silver nanoparticles significantly enhance the surface area available to microorganisms, thus boosting antimicrobial activity. NSF can be an ultimate and excellent way of arresting the carious lesion when administered directly to caries lesions with the aesthetic outcome by eliminating the drawbacks of discoloration with Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF).
Keywords: Nano Silver Fluoride, dental caries, Preventive dentistry, Minimally Invasive Dentistry.
