PMID: 9063219

The aim of this study was to clinically evaluate fluoride-containing sealants in teeth subjected to minimal enamel reduction (preventive resin restorations). Two hundred fourteen sealants (109 FluroShield and 105 Delton Fluor) were applied in 153 teeth of 32 subjects. The sealants were evaluated for superficial irregularities, marginal adaptation, retention, and caries after 6, 12, 18, and 24 months. After 6, 12, and 18 months, the attendance at recall was 100.00%. After 24 months, 93.75% of subjects returned for reevaluation. Although total or partial loss of sealant occurred in a few instances, no occlusal caries was found in any tooth at any recall. No statistically significant differences in the results of the clinical evaluation were found between sealant in the maxillary and mandibular dentitions.
