Pit and Fissure Sealant versus Fluoride Varnish for the Prevention of Dental Caries in School Children: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Findings of this meta-analysis proved there is no significant difference between PFS and FV in caries prevention efficacy of FPMs at 2 years' follow-up, emphasizing the use of FV since it is more affordable and easier to apply.

Comparative effectiveness research of two glass ionomer cements for primary molar fissure sealing

Both studied GICs for non-invasive primary molar fissure sealing were equally highly effective for pit and fissures caries prevention in children.

Performance of fissure sealants on fully erupted permanent molars with incipient carious lesions: A glass-ionomer-based versus a resin-based sealant

Resin-based fissure sealant with fluoride releasing properties might be preferable in preventing caries progression of incipient non-cavitated carious lesions in fully-erupted teeth.

Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis on the Effect of Self-Assembling Peptide P11-4 on Initial Caries Lesions

CR has a treatment effect on caries arrest and decreased lesion size, and is a promising treatment for initial caries lesions, according to a systematic review and meta-analysis.

An In-Vitro Analysis of Microleakage of Self-Adhesive Fissure Sealant vs. Conventional and GIC Fissure Sealants

The present findings suggest that the self-adhesive sealant and the GIC sealant that were exposed to TLC had comparable sealing ability and superior sealing characteristics compared to the conventional resin-based sealant.



Flowable composite as fissure sealing material? A systematic review and meta-analysis

It seems that the use of flowable composite as a fissure sealing material can slightly increase the retention rate of sealants compared with conventional resin-based sealants.

Validity of Sealant Retention as Surrogate for Caries Prevention – A Systematic Review

The current clinical evidence suggests that complete retention of pit and fissure sealants may not be a valid surrogate endpoint for caries prevention as its clinical endpoint.

Retention and caries-preventive effect of glass ionomer and resin-based sealants: An 18-month-randomized clinical trial.

Both sealants had comparable retention and caries-preventive effects in 6-9-year old children and showed better caries prevention in moderate caries risk children after 18 months.

Retention of a glass ionomer cement and a resin-based fissure sealant and effect on carious outcome after 7 years.

The aim of this study was to compare the retention and caries preventive efficacy of glass ionomer (Fuji III; GIC) and light-cured resin-based (Delton; LCR) fissure sealants. One hundred and

A comparison of retention and the effect on caries of fissure sealing with a glass-ionomer and a resin-based sealant.

The glass-ionomer sealant tested in the present study had poorer retention and less caries protective effect than the resin-based sealant used.

One-year clinical evaluation of the retention of resin and glass ionomer sealants on permanent first molars in children

GIC and resin-based sealants achieved similar results with regards to retention during a one-year follow-up period, but the difference was not statistically significant.

Pit and Fissure Sealants with Different Materials: Resin Based x Glass Ionomer Cement – Results after Six Months

Both sealants, Fluroshield® and Clinpro TM Varnish® XT were effective in preventing caries lesion within 6 months, although Fluro shield sealant showed better clinical retention.

The retention of GIC sealants was markedly inferior to the retention of resin-based sealants; however, GIC when used as a pit and fissure sealant was slightly more effective in preventing occlusal caries.
