    Not new :) I had mine done when was in grade school, in about '93 or '94. I did get a couple of cavities as a kid, but I think I had the sealant done after that to prevent more. I think it wears off after a certain number of years though?

    I have my molars sealed, and I am cavity-free. :) I'm definitely getting this done with Elyse.

    Not new hun, Dan has had all his adult molar teeth fissure sealed and Dec will to, the only problem with them is that they can keep falling out !!! Dan has had to have 3 redone and now that we have to pay for them it is expensive.

    i always had mine done when i was little. They get checked at your 6 month cleaning and replaced if they have worn out :)

    I was just at the dentist yesterday, and they commented (since I have many fillings -- grew up in the 1970's) how much better kids do now, with the sealants. My daughter (with sealants) has just 1 filling, at 14. I probably had... a dozen. :(
