Objective: To evaluate retention of two resin based fissure sealants (Embrace and Delton FS+) for a period of twelve months. Materials and Methods: Sixty eight first permanent molars were sealed for seventeen healthy children in the age group of six-eight years. According to random selection, the first permanent molars on the right side of both arches were sealed with Embrace (Group A) and on the left side of both arches were sealed with Delton FS+ (Group B). Results: The total retention of Embrace was 23.50% and for Delton FS+ was 17.60% at one year. Conclusion: At one year the total retention of Embrace was 23.50% and for Delton FS+ was 17.60%, however the results were statistically insignificant.
