There is currently a lot of interest in Bisphenol-A, a material used in plastics. There is plenty of misinformation and misunderstanding about this product, and while we are not experts on Bisphenol A, we do have plenty of concerns in how it is used in baby bottles, other plastic bottles (drinking, mouthwash, etc.) and how it is used in dental sealants.
Until all of the information is available, and more research is done, we would advise you to learn as much about Bisphenol A and the products it is used for. We encourage you to think carefully before allowing dental sealants to be used on you or your children, and to critically consider alternatives to Bisphenol A products.
Below are some resources, for and against the use of Bisphenol A. If you have any other links, studies or reaseach that you feel would be a good resource to parents on Bisphenol A, dental sealants or xylitol, please comment on this post. And although we discourage the use of Bisphenol A given the current research and our understanding, we wish to learn as much as possible, and also provide you with a well-rounded and objective set of resources so that you can make your own informed decision.
