Prevention

  1. Primary Prevention is provided to all the children in the age group of 4 to 16 years with positive consents.
  2. Type and mode of delivery of preventive care under SOHP has evolved during the recent years.
  3. Biannual application of Fluoride varnish and Pit and Fissure Sealants on newly erupted Permanent molars and pre-molars are the forms of primary prevention performed under SOHP.
  4. Fluoride gel was replaced with Fluoride varnish since 2006.
  5. Prevention productivity has increased during the recent years which have been possible due to the efficient use of portable units for prevention.
  6. Today SOHP has 43 mobile teams for Sealants and around 30 teams for fluoride varnish application. These teams cover schools that do not have fixed dental clinics.
