Dental Sealant

This program was launched in 2009 aiming to reduce the incidence of dental caries among children.

The program targets elementary public school students, grades three and four (aged 8-10 years), determined to improve oral health, and prevent dental decay by applying the Dental Sealant technique.

This program is executed in collaboration with the Lebanese University dental medicine faculty and the Lebanese Ministry Of Education and Higher Learning. It is funded by the National Arab American Medical Association (NAAMA).

Dental Sealants are plastic coatings that are applied to the grooves of teeth in order to create a smoother surface that is less likely to trap food and plaque. They can protect treated teeth for up to five years.

Recipients, however, still have to observe sound oral health practices and eat a healthy diet. The sealant is applied on permanent not decayed teeth; then it is cured with light. The process takes around 15 minutes per tooth.

Since the beginning of the Dental Sealant Program at Ajialouna together we were able to treat more than 2,544 students with 5,737 dental sealant applied.

Mechanism of Action

A consent form is sent to the parents at the beginning of the academic year, in order to get their approval. (The dentists will not assess any child who does not have the signed consent form).

The students are examined by a dentist and the results are noted on a specific examination form. If the student was found eligible for dental sealant, dental sealant is applied on the designated teeth. Finally, a feedback form is sent to parents.
