Traduction en anglais : The pros and cons of fissure sealing.
Whereas in Germany fissure sealing has just become a routine treatment in caries prevention, scientists from Sweden and Switzerland proclaim this procedure as economically ineffective.
This may result from a low caries prevalence in these countries, which means that only few fissures tend to turn into carious lesions without protection by a fissure sealing.
Caries prevalence in Germany is still at a higher level.
Thus fissure sealing can be considered cost effective.
Besides this, from an ethical viewpoint, the protection and reestablishment of health should never be seen only as an economical issue.
That is why fissure sealing is highly recommended as a caries preventive procedure.
