The article discusses a study which compares the retention rates of pit and fissure sealants placed with acid-etching and air abrasion followed by acid etching in 16 teenagers. The sealant retention rates at 12 and 24 months were higher in subjects whose pit and fissure sealants were placed with air abrasion followed by acid etching. The distribution of sealant retention rates for molars and premolars are also compared.

    Etching preferentially occurs on cuspal inclines and on premolars vs molars. After longer times, etching occurs near the pits and fissures. Enamel rods etch at cores and prism borders simultaneously in the same area. Longer etching times produce more enamel surface relief, permitting better...
