Introduction: Dental caries in pits and fissures lead to various preventive inventions and creativity as blocking the pit and fissures and fluoride treatment. This effort against pit and fissure caries continues, and latest innovations in new materials and technologies tested each year. Keeping this these points in view a study was designed to assess the retention of flowable unfilled composite resin in comparison to a dual staged flowable unfilled and conventional resin-based sealant.
Materials and methods: The experimental study was conducted in 30 children aged6 and 10 years, who visited the Public Health Dentistry Department, Vyas Dental College and Hospital. Screening was carried out by trained examiners using plain mouth mirrors, explorers, tweezers and pit and fissure sealants (Clinpro™ Sealant Fissure and filtek P 60 posterior restorative), and light cure. The statical analysis was done by using SPSS version 21(Chicago, USA). The p value? 0.05 was found to be statistically significant.
Result: When retention was compared between Clinpro and Clinpro + Filtek P60 after 3 months and 6 months, the difference was statistically significant (p= 0.039 and 0.026 respectively, S.) shows when compared the mean surface retention and standard deviation it was found that the mean surface retention was in Clinpro then Clinpro + Filtek P60 higher after 6 months (0.600), as compared to 3 months (0.466).
Conclusion: The resin-based unfilled pit and fissure sealant (Clinpro) clinically performed better when compared to and Clinpro (unfilled) resin-based pit and fissure sealants+ Filtek P60 (posterior restorative).
