The retention of sealants relies upon the ability of the resin sealant to thoroughly fill pits and fissures and/ or morphological defects and remain completely intact and bonded to enamel surface for a life time.

Forty children, who reported to the Department of Pedodontics and Preventive Dentistry, College of Dental Surgery, Saveetha University, in the age group 7 to 10 years were selected based on a double-blinded analysis for fully erupted first permanent molars with intact deep and retentive fissures.

Materials and Methods: Fifty-six children between the age group of 6 and 9 years, with all four newly erupted permanent first molars were selected.

Sealants were applied randomly using split mouth design technique on permanent first molars.

This difference in retention rates between filled and unfilled pit and fissure sealants was not statistically significant.

Conclusion: The difference in retention rates between Helioseal F and Clinpro was not statistically significant, but Clinpro (unfilled) sealant showed slightly higher retention rates and clinically better performance than Helioseal F (filled).

SRM J Res Dent Sci [serial online] 2014 [cited 2017 Jun 4];3-7. 2014/5/4/253/145131Dental caries remains as one of the most widespread disease of mankind.

It is the single most common chronic childhood disease.

Preventive and therapeutic treatment based on the philosophy of health promotion in dentistry can interfere with the demineralization of dental tissue by arresting, balancing or decreasing the progression rate of carious lesions.

The difference in the viscosity of the sealants differs in the penetration into pit and fissures and abrasive wear resistance property due to the addition of filler particles.

The present study was conducted to evaluate and compare the retention of the resin-based filled (Helioseal F, Ivoclar Vivadent) and unfilled (Clinpro, 3M ESPE) pit and fissure sealants, which is important for their effectiveness.

Enamel surfaces with pits and fissures receive minimal caries protection from either systemic or topical fluoride agents, the reason for ineffectiveness of fluorides in the pit and fissure caries may be related to the differences in enamel thickness and the inaccessibility of the base of pits and fissures to topical fluorides.

The most efficient way to prevent pit and fissure caries is by effectively sealing the fissures using resins called pit and fissure sealants.

Systematic exposure to fluorides, along with better nutrition, rising material standards of living and better access to dental care have reduced the susceptibility of contemporary child populations to infectious diseases affecting the oral cavity.

For example, a recent study of Canadian children aged 13–14 years found that 64% were caries free.

Physically/mentally challenged children, those with poor systemic health under medication and children with deleterious oral habits affecting occlusion were excluded from the study.

The four sealants that were studied included (a) Clinpro (GC Corporation, Tokyo, Japan). The nature and objectives of the trial as well as the possible discomforts and benefits were explained, and an informed consent was obtained from the guardian.

Materials and methods: In this study, a total of 40 children with all first permanent molars erupted received four different pit and fissure sealants. Results: The data was subjected to Chi-square test and Kaplan Meier survival analysis.

The p-value was calculated using Wilcoxon matched-pairs signed-rank test.
