Abstract

This paper reviews key issues of sealant use and methodology and poses recommendations to inform the discussion toward a consensus statement by participants. A comprehensive review of sealant literature, including policy recommendations from previous conferences that reviewed best practices for sealant use, was completed. Building on previous review papers and on previous policy statements by dental and public health groups, this paper discusses key questions about sealant use in light of contemporary caries data and cost-benefit analyses. In addition, newest material advancements are reviewed to establish the next step in sealant improvement for young patients.
