Sealants

Coverage Continues: Evidence Indicates Children Strongly Benefit From Sealants.

MDLinx (7/27) covers the ADA News story reporting on the August edition of The Journal of the American Dental Association that contains “a systematic review” that demonstrates using sealants is effective to prevent and manage occlusal caries in children and adolescents. In addition, the American Dental Association (ADA) Council on Scientific Affairs (CSA) and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) have updated the “clinical practice guidelines.” The article’s lead author, Dr. John Timothy Wright, said, “The guidelines show that sealants are more effective in managing pit and fissure caries than fluoride treatments, such as varnish.”
