Health + Beauty

On a recent routine dental checkup, my daughter’s dentist suggested we do sealants. As a master researcher of all things health-related, I am embarrassed to admit that I was stumped. In a moment of weakness–or perhaps blind faith–I succumbed. (Okay, I also couldn’t bear the thought of having to drag her back into the city from Brooklyn, should I determine in my masterful research that they were in fact okay). Preempting my concerns, she one-upped me by assuring me they didn’t have BPA in them. What? I didn’t even know that BPA was a possible ingredient. So, even after having gone through the procedure, I decided to dig a little deeper. I found this great article from the San Francisco Chronicle, which really did all the research for me and confirmed that I had made the right decision. Take note of BPA-free brand of sealants (versus the ones that are not BPA-free) in case you find yourself in a similar predicament.

    I’ve had sealants since all my permanent molars grew in, back in the 80s. They were worth every penny as I haven’t had any cavities, ever. My molars are filling-free. How many people can say that?!
