My recently retired dentist refused to use sealants on my children's teeth because of his concerns about the uncertainty of the long-term effects of the sealants on human health, especially endocrine disruption.

Our new dentist just saw my 16 y/o and said she had many naturally-occurring cracks in her teeth and recommended a dental sealant at $57 USD per tooth on 6 teeth. He said the sealant would last appx 3 years. She does have one cavity already. (I'm a bit OCD with my Sonicare & Glide floss with a mouthful of fillings. My husband brushes for, like 60 seconds, NEVER flosses and has no cavities.)

Any dentists/techs here who can weigh in on this? I did see an NIH site listing resins as possible endocrine disruptors but the science is not fully fleshed out yet.

I'm not a chemicalphobe but as a cancer survivor and a person with autoimmune disorders I'm conflicted.

I would love to hear more too. It's just my luck - I took my son TODAY to get sealants. I had no idea there was a controversy at all. I didn't have to sign anything and they mentioned nothing. Now I'm feeling uninformed and not happy at all that I took him!

I had my sons' molars and bicuspids sealed 21 years ago. Best decision I ever made, tooth wise. No cavities to this day on them and he was not a prolific brusher and is a huge cocacola consumer. I worked for a dentist in college who raved about them, so when Brandon came along and got his permanent teeth in, I jumped on it. I have not heard of any long term adverse reactions.

My mother is a dentist and had sealants put on all of us when we were young. I believe she also has them on herself. She actually teaches best practices/continuing education classes to dentists around the country.
