Dental Sealants Do Not Pose Risk to Patients

A study published in the Journal of the American Dental Association reports that patients are not exposed to harmful levels of estrogenic substances such as bisphenol A through the application of dental sealants, generally used to protect children's teeth from decay.

An earlier study published by researchers at the University of Granada in Spain had suggested that dental sealants could pose a health risk to children.

For more information on the study and its findings, please refer to an American Dental Association press release and a Reuters article.
