Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
the Rationale of the experiment arm are:
-Finding on the use of (self-etch adhesives) which is the experiment arm is still inconclusive and further clinical trials are needed.
-There is no published clinical study employing a self-etch mode of universal adhesive agent for the placement of fissure sealants.
-With the elimination of the acid etching (rinsing and drying) steps (in the control arm), the need for fewer operative steps and shorter chair time is particularly interesting when treating paediatric patients

In the experiment arm, I will use dental material (not a drug) already in the market globally for more than 5 years (Single Bond Universal Adhesive Scotchbond™) as etching material in a self-etch way but the difference is that I will test the effectiveness of what the producer claims it's effective.
According to manufacturer instruction, the etching material will be raped on the tooth surface for 20 sec then blow with air and use the light cure.

All applications and examinations will be conducted by a single operator which is a dentist.
The self-etching material will be placed on the targeted molar just before the fissure sealant.
According to the pilot study we performed 5min is the estimated time for each tooth.

After curing the sealant will be checked for voids using an explorer.
The occlusion will be checked with articulation paper

The school children will be examined in their school as part of the local preventive program then the potential subject will be given participate sheet and consent form.
Then after that appointments will be arranged to apply the fissure sealant with a different technique in dental faculty um in optimal situations
then participants will be reviewed in 6 and 12 months later

Randomization between techniques will be achieved by computer-generated randomization
Intervention code [1] 314157 0
Prevention
Comparator / control treatment
The golden stander technique in applying fissure sealant will be used as a control arm which known by an acid etch the tooth surface with 37% phosphoric acid for 30 sec. Then wash and dry without saliva contamination after that apply the fissure sealant which is the same in both arms (Clinpro TM Sealant, St Paul, MN, USA)
Control group
Active

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 319710 0
Primary outcome: Retention capability of fissure sealant

Evaluation criteria:
Using visual inspection to evaluate the sealants as described by Feigal RJ et al. (2000):
A) complete retention (all pits and fissures covered by the sealant)
B) partial loss (one or more fissures not covered by the sealant)
B1, without caries; B2, with caries
C) complete loss (all pits and fissures uncovered)
C1, without caries; C2, with caries

All follow up will be carried out by a single dentist.

There is no complications or possible adverse effects that may happen to your child
Timepoint [1] 319710 0
6,9 and 12 months post-fissure sealant application.
6 months after fissure sealant applications is the primary timepoint.

Intervention assignment
Parallel
Other design features
spilt mouth design
It is a popular design in oral health research, each of the two treatments (experiment and control) are randomly assigned to either the right or left halves of the dentition. So by this design, we can reduce the variables between the two groups.

Summary
Brief summary
In the intervention group, I will use dental material (not a drug) already in the market globally for more than 5 years (Single Bond Universal Adhesive Scotchbond™) but the difference is that I will test the effectiveness of what the producer claims it's effective.

Study purpose
This study is important to determine the superiority of retention clinically between the two techniques of sealant applications.

Hypothesis
There is a difference in sealant retention after the application of the self-etch (intervention) or the traditional acid-etch(control) techniques.
