Dental Sealants

My children’s dentist has suggested using dental sealants to prevent cavities. Do you have any information about the safety and effectiveness of sealants? Could you point me in the right direction for finding information about dental sealants? Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

My first question to you is, “Why don’t you explore this issue further with your dentist?” If you cannot do this, it may mean that you don’t trust the advice you are getting. In that case, I suggest you change dentists. In any professional relationship, trust is an important factor. As to the benefits of dental sealants, I suggest you search the archives of the Holistic Dental Association at www.holisticdental.org as well as the American Dental Association at www.ada.org for the most recent and pertinent information. Then discuss your findings with your dentist and come to a mutual decision. Good luck!
