Bisphenol A (BPA) is a synthetic chemical resin used worldwide to produce plastic products. It is also a component of the bisphenol A diglycidylether methacrylate (Bis-GMA), which is a monomer found in dental resin-based materials (including resin-based dental sealants, RBSs). The controversy about its possible toxicity begins around the early ‘30s. Even if the amount of BPA released by dental sealants is well below the limit proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the European Food Safety Authority, we can reduce the risk of exposure, particularly for children, following precautionary measures.
