What it Covers
Zyris supported a study performed by two Pediatric Dental Residents at Temple University to compare the efficiency of sealant placement using the Isolite® system compared to traditional methods of isolation. A second study followed these patients for a 12-month check-in to determine the retention of the sealants based on their cohort. Request the full study to discover the difference the Isolite system made.
Purpose: To compare sealant placement time using Isolite® Illuminated Dental Isolation System with the traditional cotton roll isolation technique.
Methods: A total of 104 subjects between the ages of five and fifteen in a pediatric dentistry residency clinic were enrolled. Subjects were randomized into first molar (65 subjects) and second molar (39 subjects) groups undergoing sealant placement with one of the two sealant methods and the time to sealant completion was recorded.
