Self-etching Pit & Fissure Sealant

February 15, 2017

 

Use this self-etching technique on patients in need of preventive sealing of pits on permanent teeth presenting a raised risk of developing cavities. Sealing with Prevent Seal 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:

  • 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.

  • Pointed brushes for easy cleaning of the pits and fissures.

  • Extra fine needle tips for precise and economical sealant application.

 

Additional Tips From Itena: 

  • 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.

  • Prevent Seal is a composite resin and is therefore compatible with all other available composites.
