The Journal of The California Dental Association featured dental sealants in it’s October 2010 issue. Several articles appeared in the issue to provide the dental health professional with sound scientific and evidence-based data on the use and placement of dental sealants. The articles were based on the recommendations made by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association. At Smiles, we take every precaution to place excellent sealants for our friends. By selecting to use a composite filling and a bonding agent rather than only the usual sealant materials, we achieve better retention and a more positive outcome for this procedure.
