A recent study conducted by the Pediatrics medical journal revealed that numerous sealants and filling offered by dentists contain traceable levels bisphenol A (BPA). Evidence showed that BPA was released from dental resins and was even detecable in a child’s saliva up to 3 hours after work had been installed. As of late, any product containing BPA has come under heavy scrutiny given the chemical’s link to health and developmental issues, including DNA damage and low sperm count in men. So how dangerous is this to you and your children’s health? And how safe are your visits to the dentist? Find the answers to these pressing questions as well as how to limit your and your family’s exposure to BPA ahead.
