Dental Practice Management Survey: Dentists Favor Sealants

Dentists favor dental sealantsIn this dental practice management survey, we asked dentists what they think about using dental sealants on young patients.

Most dentists are in favor of using dental sealants as standard treatment for children.

The majority of dentist respondents said sealants are great as standard dental treatment on most young patients.

However, a few survey particpants who practice dentistry for children have reservations. They think dental sealants should be used conservatively, and only on selected young patients.

“We only recommended sealants for patients with very poor home dental care, high caries risk, and deep developmental grooves in molars. Although, I would prefer to refrain from placing them. They tend to turn into restorations and develop decay underneath.”
Suburban dental practice

“Dental sealants are great for doing bulk cases in School Dental Programs. They can help to arrest Pit and Fissure Caries.” Urban dental practice

None of the dentists responding to our survey thought that dental sealants should be avoided completely.

How do you use dental sealants in your practice?
