From our hygienists’ perspective, any sealant that will eliminate the steps of acid etching and rinsing would be very desirable. Since we end up placing sealants on kids that are difficult to control, the benefits of such a system would be great, provided that it works.
We are therefore intrigued with the new self-etching sealant system, Enamel Loc, from Premier Dental.
According, to the company, Enamel Loc is:
“The First Self-Etching Light-Cured Pit & Fissure Sealant. “
It’s benefits include:
- Self-etching: eliminates acid-etch, rinse, dry and bond steps; reduces gagging and saves time
- One step: Improves results by reducing the chance of site contamination
- Fluoride release formula, and more… (Find out more at Premier’s website.)
However, we have heard varying accounts of Enamel Loc’s reliability. One local office loves it, but another tried it and returned it because the sealants fell off. What have your results been like?
