There are different dental procedures that can prevent milk teeth from caries. One of such procedure is teeth silvering, carried out by the Pedodontists in Tennessee. In the early stages it even stops the development of caries. The procedure itself is absolutely painless, children bear it easily. Pedodontists cover child teeth with 30% silver nitrate solution, thus creating a silver protective film. However, teeth silvering is only recommended for primary teeth, as silver penetrates into the layer of the teeth enamel, resulting in tooth darkening with time.
