In this era of preventive dentistry, a galore of dental materials used for prevention of dental diseases is available. Since the last few decades efforts are being directed towards prevention of dental caries which is one of the major dental diseases tormenting mankind. The rationale of using a fissure sealant is that when it is applied on the caries prone fissures, it penetrates these pits and fissures and seals them from the oral environment. One of the main problems usually encountered is retention of the sealant material. This study was undertaken with the aim to evaluate the tensile bond strength of two new fissure sealants using invasive and non-invasive techniques. The results substantiated the use of invasive techniques over non-invasive techniques and resin sealants over glass ionomer sealants.
