Dental Sealants still Underused by Dentist.

Posted on Thursday, Feb. 23rd 2012 9:45 AM by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Plan Reviews No Comments »

A recent study suggest that no enough dentist are using dental sealants to help protect back teeth.   Temple University’s dental school researchers who did the study, surveyed 595 general dentists and 176 pediatric dentists. The dentist were asked about whether they would use sealants on teeth with different signs of early decay. They also were asked how they felt about using sealants in different groups of people.

In 2008 the ADA endorsed the use of sealants n teeth with the earliest stages of decay. In these stages, a molar or premolar is discolored on its chewing surface, but there is no cavity in the tooth yet. Research has shown that sealing teeth like this can prevent cavities.

However the new survey found that many dentist do not either know about the ADA panel’s advise or the dentist that do know do not agree with it.  It also show that Pediatric dentist were more likely to follow the recommendations then general dentist.

This study appears in the September issue of the Journal of the American Dental Association
