Why does my holistic dentist used sealants with BPA?

I recently went to a clinic listed as a holistic, yet he uses sealants that have BPA. What’s up with that?

Monica,

Each holistic dentist is different. ┬áThere isn’t a regulation for being labled holistic. Some are just mercury free. Some are mercury and BPA free. ┬áBe careful. There are some who call themselves holistic and are perfectly willing to remove and replace your amalgam fillings, but don’t know about sanitary removal.

It’s kind of hard to tell what you’re getting. If you have strong feelings about certain types of treatment, it will be important to discuss this ahead of time. You’ll want to find the dentist who, even if he doesn’t do only holistic treatments, is willing to work within your desires and concerns. Communication is the key.
