SMART Dentistry

Silver Modified Atraumatic Restorative Technique (SMART) is used for children who are too young or otherwise unable to cooperate for traditional fillings and do not have severe enough work to need heavier sedation. This technique aims to halt tooth decay with the use of silver diamine fluoride. At Happy Smile Pediatric Dentistry we have found that using SMART dentistry is beneficial to children because the tooth and tooth pulp can be preserved in one appointment, minimizing anxiety for pediatric patients.
