Supporting data for Caries prevention for preschool children using silver diamine fluoride
This PhD research encompassed a 12-month randomized, double-blind clinical trial was conducted to compare the caries-preventive effects of SDF and sodium fluoride varnish on the anterior primary teeth of 3- to 4-year-old children. The combined dataset includes data from both studies.In the clinical trial, surface-level data were analyzed using Generalized Estimating Equations (GEE) with a logit link function and exchangeable correlation. This approach investigated the link between interventions and decayed surface incidence while accounting for tooth surface clustering within each child.
