3M™ ESPE™ Clinpro™ Sealer is a fluoride-releasing, light-cure, low viscosity pit and fissure sealant with a revolutionary colour changing function. When applied to the tooth surface Clinpro™sealant is pink, but when exposed to light, it turns an opaque off white colour. The pink colour aids the dental practitioner in determining the amount of material to use and the accuracy with which it is applied throughout the sealant treatment.
- Dental sealants have been shown in studies to be effective in preventing tooth decay.
- Another study found that using fissure sealants can help prevent dental decay in high-risk young children.
