Abstract
The objective of the study was to examine the coverage of the sealing program on first permanent molars (FPMs) and second permanent molars (SPMs) and first and second premolars (FSPMs), as well as to monitor the fate of the sealed teeth over time. All patients born in 1977 who had had regular check-ups in the Varkaus Health Center, Finland (n = 166) were included in the 1996 study. Data on the annual state of each tooth had been collected retrospectively since 1983. The coverage for the sealant program was 95%, 92%, and 6% of the FPMs, SPMs, and FSPMs, respectively. Out of the FPMs sealed at age 6 years, 28% were subjected to resealing, 13% developed occlusal, and 15% proximal caries during a 13-year follow-up period. From the SPMs sealed at age 11 years, 24% were subjected to resealing, 4% developed occlusal caries, and less than 2% proximal caries during the 9-year follow-up. None of the sealed FSPMs and only 1% of the non-sealed ones developed occlusal caries during the 9-year period. The mean DMF in the study population (n = 160) at age 12 years was 0.8 (n = 124), compared to a nation-wide mean value of 1.2. A large percentage of the FPMs and SPMs were sealed and then resealed during the study period. Although the study design lacked a control group for comparison, the lower caries rates of this study compared to the results of other studies with only a single application of sealants suggest a major role for resealing.

Abstract
The purpose of the present study was to establish whether the number of intact teeth in Helsinki schoolchildren aged 7-13 years was rationally correlated with the wartime reduction in sugar consumption and, later, with dental health education programs in Finland. The period covered is 44 years. The results show that dental health education is effective in caries prevention and that enforced programs can lead to an improvement similar to that seen during the war.

Abstract
Water fluoridation has not been introduced in Norway, although 99% of the population receive water with suboptimal fluoride levels. Alternative methods of fluoride prophylaxis have gained wide acceptance in this country. While less than 1% of the children received fluoride tablet in 1971, sales data in 1976 indicated a daily supply of fluoride tablets to 50% of the 0-5-year-olds and to 20% of the 6-11-year-olds. Most schoolchildren have joined mass prophylactic programs with regular with regular applications of fluoride solutions. Furthermore, fluoride-containing dentifrices have become available and are increasingly used. The increased use of fluoride has been paralleled by a marked reduction in caries and restorative need. During the past 5 years, a reduction of about 45% in the number of fillings inserted in 6-17-year-old children has been noted. In some areas, a 70% reduction has been recorded. The ratio between expenses for prophylaxis and savings in cost of treatment is favorable. The Norwegian Adverse Drug Reaction Committe received 34 case reports of adverse effects ascribed to fluoride prophylaxis, from 1970 to 1977. None of the 25 follow-up studies performed, suggested fluoride to have been responsible for the reported symptoms. In Norway, the benefits of fluoride prophylaxis are becoming increasingly evident.

Abstract
Three hermetics are assessed: chemically hardened Delton, light-hardened Estiseal, and composite Evikrol. The study was carried out in 126 children aged 6 years. The decrease of the increment of dental caries depends on the retention of hermetics on the occlusion surface of the teeth, and the efficacy of caries prevention in permanent teeth is much higher if hermetic sealing of fissures and fossae is combined with local fluorine prophylaxis and oral hygiene. All types of hermetics can be used to prevent permanent teeth caries, but chemically hardened ones should be preferred.

Abstract
Population-based health promotion with school-based fluoride varnish programmes is becoming more frequent, as these programmes have been implemented in many parts of Sweden during the last five years. The caries-prevention effect is well studied, but as yet there is no study aimed at adolescents'experiences of these programmes. The aim of this study was therefore to describe how a school-based fluoride varnish programme is experienced by participating adolescents. The study was performed as a qualitative study by conducting four focus-groups interviews. In all, 26 adolescents participated, all aged 15. All the participants had several years'experiences of a fluoride varnish programme at school. The participants were asked to describe their experience of participating in the programme.The analysis of the data from the interviews was carried out according to the principles of phenomenography.The three themes that emerged were"Conceptions in relation to the individual", "Conceptions in relation to the school dental nurse"and "Conceptions in relation to the group and school". The result showed that the adolescents experienced that it was positive to take part in a fluoride varnish programme at school and they regarded the school as an important health promotion arena. In spite of this, there were perceptions that were worth reflecting on for school dental nurses, such as feelings of exposure, peer pressure and a perceived lack of information. To further improve these programmes, and thereby increase population-based dental health promotion, it is important to highlight the role of dental personnel, as they are largely responsible for creating the atmosphere.
