GC America’s Glass Ionomer Sealants don't Contain Bis-GMA or BPA
Use GC Fuji TRIAGE® Glass Ionomer Sealant and Surface Protectant for Caries Prevention
September 2010 - Recent media attention has focused on potential health issues for children and the unborn fetus with the use of Bis-GMA and Bis-Phenol A (BPA). These chemicals are contained in resin sealants as well as some other materials. GC America would like to confirm that our dental glass ionomer sealants sold in the United States, Canada, and Latin America do not contain Bis-GMA or Bis-Phenol A (BPA) as an ingredient. GC America’s sealants are not resin sealants.
GC America products are certified to ISO 13485 standards, which comply with strict safety regulations. These products are registered in all countries where we manufacture and distribute. When required, our products have the CE mark in Europe, are registered with Health Canada, and have received FDA Pre-Market Notification clearance for sale in the United States under section 510(k) of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
GC Fuji TRIAGE, available from GC America, is a glass ionomer sealant offering evidence-based, safe protection that is backed by extensive research and has the following advantages:
• Easy placement and moisture tolerant
• Ability to place on a partially erupted tooth for earlier protection than with a resin sealant
• High release of fluoride on an on-going basis with fluoride recharge capability.
• Quick setting
