200 children of the age groups of 3-5 years and 6-7 years were selected for sealant application, each consisting of 100 children. The clinical retention of Fuji VII was tested in both primary and permanent molar teeth at time intervals of 6 months, 12 months and 24 months follow-up and compared with a resin based sealant, Concise. Results demonstrated that there was no difference in the performance of the materials in primary and permanent teeth.
