Abstract

Caries is the greatest oral health problem in children aged 3-5 years in Indonesia. Early caries treatment can heal toothache and increase quality of life. Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) is used to treat primary teeth caries. Herein, we evaluated the quality of life of 59 children aged 3-5 years 3 months after SDF application. Mothers were given a quality of life questionnaire before and after application. After SDF application, 89.36% of caries were arrested and the quality of life of the children had significantly increased (p < 0.05). SDF was effective in treating primary teeth caries and increasing children's quality of life.
