A Tale of Two Hygienists Podcast

Oct 16, 2020

This week on A Tale of Two Hygienists TIPisode we are joined by Pediatric Dentist, Dr.Jeannette MacLean to talk to us about sealants, and why she exclusively uses Glass Ionomer Sealants from GC America. 
Episode Highlights
  • Resin Based Sealants - The Cons 
  • Glass Ionomer Sealants - Revolutionized Sealants 
“Resin is touted as being so strong and wear resistant, but it is basically just plastic, there is no other redeeming quality to the material other than providing a physical barrier” 
“Retention of the Glass Ionomer Sealant is not necessary for caries prevention"
“This basically blew my mind” 
“The material actually acts as a fluoride reservoir and releases and recharges with fluoride” 
“My practice made the switch to Glass Ionomer Sealants, exclusively using GC America’s Fuji Triage Sealant and we have never looked back”
“We can get these sealants on basically anyone” 
“The procedure is so quick and simple we typically do it right at the appointment” 
“We can usually get all 4 first permanent molars done on one capsule of Fuji Triage in under 5 minutes, it's awesome!"
“If you are not using Glass Ionomer Sealants yet, now is the time to make the switch, you will not regret it”
