Performance of Resin Modified Glass Ionomer Sealer vs. Resin-Based Sealer

Abstract: the objective of this article is to compare the retention between a resin-modified glass ionomer sealant and resin sealant. In addition, the sealed teeth were compared to unsealed ones in relation to the incidence of dental caries. Material and Methods Initially, 31 children aged 6-8 years participated in this study. The study children showed caries history, but had at least two healthy first molars. A total of 108 teeth were randomly divided into three groups Clinpro (n=36), Fluroshield (n=36), and control (n=36). The two sealants were applied under relative isolation after previous prophylaxis and enamel etching with phosphoric acid 38 % for 15 seconds. Evaluation of retention was performed by two calibrated examiners. Results Fluroshield showed significantly greater retention than Clinpro (p=0.002). However, the performance analysis of the success and failure of retention presented no significant difference between the materials (p=0.141). Sealed groups (Clinpro + Fluroshield) showed similar performance in the prevention of dental caries, which was significantly higher than that of control group (p=0.001). Conclusion Both sealants, Fluroshield and Clinpro were effective in preventing caries lesion within 6 months, although Fluroshield sealant showed better clinical retention.
