If placed Sealants all children when necessary, in combination with the proper use of fluorine, the greater majority of dental caries in children could be prevented.The second permanent molars erupt around the age of 12 years and of course these teeth are still as susceptible to decay to the first molars. Therefore, Sealants should be placed and adolescents, just go after the second molars in their mouth.Once out the teeth in the mouth are exposed to germs that cause tooth decay, so children and teenagers are the first candidates for placement of such fillings.

Bruxism is the excessive grinding of the teeth and/or excessive clenching of the jaw.It is an oral parafunctional activity, it is unrelated to normal function such as eating or talking. Bruxism is a common problem; reports of prevalence range from 8–31% in the general population. Bruxism may cause minimal symptoms, and therefore people may not be aware of the condition. Several symptoms are commonly associated with bruxism, including hypersensitive teeth, aching jaw muscles, and headaches. Bruxism may cause tooth wear, and even damage or break teeth and dental restorations such as crowns and fillings
There are two main types of bruxism: that which occurs during sleep (sleep bruxism) and that which occurs during wakefulness (awake bruxism). Dental damage may be similar in both types, but the symptoms of sleep bruxism tend to be worst on waking and improve during the course of the day, and the symptoms of awake bruxism may not be present at all on waking, and then worsen over the day. The causes of bruxism are not completely understood, but probably involve multiple factors. Awake bruxism is thought to have different causes than sleep bruxism, and is more common in females, whereas males and females are affected in equal proportions by sleep bruxism. Several treatments are in use, although there is little evidence of robust efficacy for any particular treatment.
Treatment for bruxism revolves around repairing the damage to teeth that has already occurred, and also often, via one or more of several available methods, attempting to prevent further damage and manage symptoms, but there is no widely accepted, best treatment. Since bruxism is not life-threatening, and there is little evidence of the efficacy of any treatment, it has been recommended that only conservative treatment which is reversible and that carries low risk of morbidity should be used. The main treatments that have been described in awake and sleep bruxism are described below, and others include physiotherapy.

Taking these specialized radiographs and the construction of this splint is useful for selecting the dimensions of the implants to be placed.
