Comments Concerning Gordon Christensen’s ACDS Course

Gordon ChristensenMy comment to Gordon Christensen during his presentation to our study group this month that glass ionomers may be more effective fissure sealants than resin based sealants seems to be confirmed in a study by Antonson, et. al., in this month’s JADA in which glass ionomers performed better over 24 months. 

Gordon said resin-based sealants were easier to place in areas where saliva control was important. Antonson’s opinion is exactly the opposite at least on partially erupted molars.  Why aren’t more sealants done with glass ionomers?
