Abstract

Objective: To compare and assess the application time, retention, marginal staining, development of carious lesion and plaque accumulation of GIOMER based pit and fissure sealants with conventional fluoride releasing pit and fissure sealant in first permanent molars.

Study Design: Fifty children in the age range of 6-9 years, following acceptable home dental care, had participated in the study. A randomized split-mouth design was used in which two fissure sealants (Helioseal F and Beautisealant) were randomly placed in 50 harmonizing contralateral duo of permanent first molars. Sealants were gauged by a single skilled and calibrated examiner using mouth mirrors and probes following the USPHS criteria at 3-, 6- and 12-months follow up.

Results: Mean application time for Beautisealant was significantly less i.e. 155.39 seconds than that of Helioseal F i.e. 260.91 seconds. The retention rates at 3, 6 and 12 months for Helioseal F was 80.4%, 76.1% and 60.9% and for Beautisealant was 71.7%, 65.2% and 47.8% respectively.

Conclusion: Application time of Beautisealant was significantly less than Helioseal F, but Helioseal F demonstrates better retention rate, while both material displayed similarresults for marginal staining, development of carious lesion and plaque accumulation.

Keywords: Pit and fissure sealants, Retention, Giomer.
