Abstract

The purpose of this in vitro study was to compare the penetration of 2 resin-based and 2 glass ionomer sealants into fissures after either conventional or mechanical preparation. All the materials placed in the conventionally prepared and mechanically prepared fissures penetrated the fissures beyond the standard (0.5-mm) reference line used in this study. For 1 glass ionomer sealant, the number of specimens showing complete penetration of sealant was significantly greater (P < 0.05) in mechanically prepared fissures than in conventionally prepared ones. No significant differences were found between mechanically and conventionally prepared fissures for the other sealants.
