The influence of the time of etching and washing on the bond strength of fissure sealants applied to enamel



The influence of the time of etching and washing on the bond strength of fissure sealants applied to enamel



Journal of Oral Rehabilitation 4(2): 139-143



Variation of the etching and washing times of enamel surfaces prior to the application of fissure sealants affect the bond strength in differing ways. Depending on the length of the etch time, the effect of washing may increase or decrease the bond strength of the sealant. Clinically, the most satisfactory combination of etch and wash time was found to be different to that suggested by the manufacturers.
