Pits & Fissure Sealants
Student will demonstrate the procedure of applying a sealant material to the pit and fissure groove areas of the teeth while adhering to infection control standards. Clinical indications and contraindications will be discussed, as well, as sealant retention.
Note: This is a 2-day course and 4 patients will be required for the Clinical Examination.
The first day of the course will consist of didactic (lecture), a final written exam and laboratory practices on a simulated typodont model to achieve minimum competence in pit and fissure sealant application prior to the performance of procedures on patients.
On the second day of the course, you will need to bring 4 clinical patients with two of the four patients used for the clinical examination. Each clinical patient must have a minimum of four (4) virgin, non-restored, natural teeth, sufficiently erupted so that a dry field can be maintained, for application of the etching, or etchant/bond combination, and sealant materials.
