Purpose: To evaluate evidence on pit and fissure sealants available since the publication: Pit and fissure Sealants: Evidence-based guidance on the use of sealants for the prevention and management of pit and fissure caries (2010) and assess whether there is a need to adapt current practice, considering the Covid-19 pandemic.
Process: Search Strategy: PubMed, Cochrane Library, Guideline International Network and Medline through PubMed databases were searched from January 2010 to June 2020. The guidelines that were used as a basis for the original guideline were also searched for updates. Ninety-six relevant papers were identified. In-vitro studies and review papers were excluded, and the 35 remaining studies were critically appraised, with results from relevant studies tabulated including the strength of the evidence.
