- It is important to reiterate that SDF doesn't only have applications in pediatric and geriatric patients. SDF can be applied in cancer patients and yield successful outcomes.
- SDF is indicated for cancer patients with extreme risk of caries, who cannot tolerate standard treatment for medical reasons, who have more lesions than can be treated in one visit and those lesions are difficult to treat, and who have limited access to dental care.
