IntroductionFissure sealants and fluoride therapy are the most
important methods of tooth decay prevention that dentists can use
on children. This research was performed to study the effects of
using local fluoride therapy before fissure sealants and its
clinical success rate.Materials and methodsThe clinical study trial
was performed on 24 people ages 6 to 12. 12 patients were randomly
selected. Method A (fissure sealant after Fluoride therapy) was
used on their first permanent molar in their left lower jaw. Method
B (fissure sealant) was used on their right side.Another 12
patients were randomly selected and method A was used on their
first permanent molar in their right lower jaw and method B was
used on their left side. Every child was given a blind code.
Marginal integrity, teeth discoloration, and structure form was
studied for deliberation of clinical success.

ResultsThe clinical success of marginal integrity without using fluoride is 3.58%, while after using fluoride it raised to 5.62%. The clinical success of marginal discoloration is 7.91% without using fluoride and 8.91% after using fluoride therapy. There is not a significant difference in clinical success of fissure sealants without using fluoride therapy and after using it.Conclusion Using fluoride gel was not effective in improving fissure sealants; therefore there is no justification in fluoride therapy before using fissure sealants.
