Self-etching light-cured pit & fissure sealant  

  • Self-etching No etching, no rinsing !
  • Excellent bonding strength on enamel (21MPa)
  • Optimal fluidity

Indications

The Dental Advisor - Prevent Seal ItenaThe self etching technique is a preventative measure for patients with an increased risk of developing cavities, that works by sealing pits in permanent teeth.

  • For pits and fissures that are particularly sensitive to dental decay, as they are difficult to clean.
  • Sealing with Prevent Seal Self-Etching Pit & Fissure Sealant gives protection to sensitive tooth surfaces by protecting them with a waterproof layer of resin, which prevents the penetration of bacteria and enhances oral hygiene.

 

Advantages

  • Self-etching
    No etching, no rinsing! A real time saver
  • Excellent bonding strength on enamel (21MPa)
    For a long lasting seal
  • Optimal fluidity
    For perfect spreading into the pits and fissures
  • Fluoride release
    For better protection against tooth decay
  • Supplied with:
    Pointed brushes > For easy cleaning of the pits and fissures
    Extra fine needle tips > For precise and economical sealant application

COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE SEALING STRENGTH OF 4 DIFFERENT MATERIALS

CONCLUSION OF STUDY: Prevent Seal performances (i.e. penetration of sealant into pits and fissures and quality of peripheral seal) were equivalent to those of conventional sealants requiring prior etching.

 

Comparative evaluation of the sealing ability of 4 materials used for sealing pits and fissures

Forty recently-extracted human molars, free from decay, were included in the study. After extraction and root cleaning, the teeth were stored in a 1% chloramine solution for a period not exceeding 3 months. The teeth were randomly divided into groups as follows: ten teeth were treated with the light-curing resin Helioseal® (Ivoclar Vivadent) (Hel), 10 with the lightcuring resin Clin Pro (3M-ESPE) (Cpro), 10 with the light-curing resin Embrace WetBondTM (Emb) (Pulpdent, distributed in France by GABA) and 10 with the new self-adhesive experimental material (Exp) (Itena). The occlusal surfaces of the teeth were brushed with a low-speed rotating brush. Teeth from the Hel, Cpro and Emb groups were etched with 35% phosphoric acid gel for 20 seconds then rinsed for 10 seconds. All materials were used according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Following sealant application, the teeth were subjected to thermal cycling for 1,500 cycles alternating between 5°C and 55°C (10 secs immersion in each bath). The apex of each tooth was sealed using Scotch bond Multipurpose Plus and Z100 (3M-ESPE) then 2 layers of nail polish were applied to within 1 mm of the sealant margin..

  • Instead of using small brushes, air abrasion can be used to thoroughly clean the tooth before applying the sealant. No traces of silica should remain as this impairs the adhesion of Prevent Seal
  • The prepared surface must be thoroughly dried before Prevent Seal is applied, as the product is hydrophobic
  • The small brushes are autoclavable and for a single use
  • Prevent Seal is a composite resin and is therefore compatible with all other available composites
