Brief Summary:
Purpose: To evaluate the retention and caries preventive effect of the glass-ionomer fissure sealants and resin-based fissure sealant. Materials and Methods: Using a split mouth design ,a double blind randomized controlled clinical trial was conducted to compare the retention and the caries preventive effect of light cure resin base sealant (3M ESPE) and Glass ionomer sealant (FUJI). The study comprised of 120 government school children of 7-9 years age group. The glass-ionomer sealant and resin-based sealant were applied randomly on either side of the first mandibular permanent molars. They were recalled for assessment of sealant retention at intervals of 3, 6 and 12 months.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Dental Caries Other: Application of the GIC based sealant Other: Resin based sealant Phase 4

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Experimental arm
Fuji type VII is a GIC based sealant with an additional property of high fluoride release
Other: Application of the GIC based sealant
Application of the GIC based sealant was carried out according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Active Comparator: Resin based sealant
Helioseal F is a resin based sealant
Other: Resin based sealant
Application of the resin based sealant on the occlusal surfaces was carried out as per the manufacturer s recommendations.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Retention of the sealant [ Time Frame: Baseline to 1 year ]
    Retention of the sealants will be assessed by using the Simensons criteria

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Caries incidence [ Time Frame: Baseline to 1 year ]
