Dental sealants have long been proven to be a safe, effective and cost-effective preventive technique to help patients avoid occlusal decay in posterior teeth. 

Let’s talk about the different dental sealant material categories as well as the pros and cons of each. Although some practitioners have a favorite type of sealant material, it may not always be appropriate for all patients. In this hands on workshop, attendees will practice with three different sealant categories so you can be confident placing all dental sealants for your patients as needed.

In this course attendees will:
  • Discuss the need for dental sealants
  • Learn about the different dental sealant material categories

  • Review the steps for placement of dental sealant materials
  • Understand the need to follow the correct steps and sequence for each material category
  • List the appropriate usage of each type of dental sealant material
