Sealant retention in pits and fissures: Preparation and application techniques: A literature review

The effectiveness of sealants as a preventive measure has been well established. However, the desirable successful outcome depends on retention and, therefore, on the factors contributing to this. The purpose of this literature review is to highlight the most significant factors connected with preparation and application of the sealant materials and any consensus that exists about their contribution to the longevity of the sealant. The preparation of the surface is a matter of great importance, the choice of the cleaning method before etching, and its relevance to retention, remains the subject of discussion. Techniques such as air abrasion, laser, and mechanical preparation have been proposed and applied with varying results. Application techniques are also a controversial area, especially when it comes to the use of self adhesive agents and special bonding agents. Other factors, however, have also been the subject of study in the literature. These include the state of eruption, the nature of isolation, type of the tooth, the profile of the operator and the kind of sealant. More long-term clinical trials are needed to examine the relationship between preparation and application process and retention in order to achieve the desired aim of improved clinical success rates.
