Description:
This guideline covers the use of pit and fissure sealants for the prevention and management of caries in the pits and fissures of primary and permanent teeth. The aim of this guideline is to reduce levels of decay in pit and fissure surfaces in children, adolescents and adults in Ireland through effective use of fissure sealants and to reduce variation in practice in the provision and application of fissure sealants. This guideline has been developed to assist dental clinicians working in public and private practice and those responsible for the planning and management of public dental services, in making decisions about the use of pit and fissure sealants. It is also relevant to all members of the dental team, members of the primary health care team (public health nurses, general medical practitioners, practice nurses etc.), parents and children, teachers and those working in other social, health and education services that deal with children.
