This week on A Tale of Two Hygienists TIPisode we are joined by return guest, Dr. Brian Novy. Dr. Novy is the Chief Dental Officer at the Alliance Dental Center. In this TIPisode Dr. Novy talks to us about sealants, and what the evidence tells us about them!
- Dr. Novy’s Background
- Glass Ionomer Sealants
“When I am not practicing dentistry, I am talking about dentistry, specifically how to manage dental decay.”
“When it comes to anything we do in dentistry there is nothing more evidence based than sealants.”
“When you see a Glass Ionomer Sealant that is not in the tooth, that is actually a good thing, it means it did exactly what it was supposed to do.”
“If that child is not developing any kind of calculus they need sealants, it means their mouth is so acidic that calculus isn’t forming.”
