Clinical evaluation of two light cured pit and fissure sealants for preventing pit and fissure caries in children



Clinical evaluation of two light cured pit and fissure sealants for preventing pit and fissure caries in children



Shanghai Kou Qiang Yi Xue 15(3): 273-275



To evaluate the clinical effect of two light cured pit and fissure sealants for preventing pit and fissure caries. 416 health permanent teeth in 162 children aged 6 to 8 years old children were divided into two groups, enameloplasty sealant technique (EST) and cup-shaped brush sealant technique (CST) were used in two groups, respeitively. 90 and 112 contralateral healthy teeth were used as self controls respectively. The rate of the sealant reservation and the incidence of caries were compared in the two groups, and the clinical effect of the two groups was compared using SPSS10.0 software package for Chi-square test. After 3 years, the rate of the sealant reservation and the incidence of caries of EST were 85.4% and 0.9% respectively, the rate of the sealant reservation and the incidence of caries of CST were 63.8% and 6.7% respectively. Statistical analysis revealed a significant difference (P<0.05) between the two groups. EST and CST both have good clinical effects, While EST is superior to CST in preventing pit and fissure caries.
