Dental sealants are a staple for caries prevention but little has been done to update or upgrade their physical characteristics. In addition, they often appear to be deceptively simple to use and place. In reality, many of the complex bonding parameters influencing direct composite resin restorations affect the retention and longevity of pit and fissure dental sealants. This CE webinar will review evidence of dental sealant use and describe the critical parameters for long-term sealant retention. A newly developed technology will also be described as a novel and effective platform for promoting sustained enamel remineralization from a pit and fissure dental resin based dental sealant.
