Ultraseal XT

Eliminate The Need To Pretreat The Tooth With PrimaDry

Introduction

UltraSeal XT hydro by Ultradent is a BPA-free pit and fissure sealant material with advanced adhesive technology securely bonds to enamel, increasing marginal retention and reducing microleakage. UltraSeal XT hydro hydrophilic chemistry eliminates the need to pretreat the tooth with PrimaDry – simplifying the procedure without compromising quality. Additionally, the sealant is hydrophilic chemistry chases moisture (that in hydrophobic sealants can cause sealant failure) deep into the pits and fissures on a microscopic level. Once there, the adhesive technology bonds the sealant to the enamel, increasing marginal retention and reducing microleakage.

Conclusion

The CPS evaluation team consisting of 20 offices and sealed over 1200 sealants placed gave Ultradent’s Ultraseal XT Hydro 4 ½ diamonds. Over 75% of the evaluation teams have used the first generation of Ultraseal and will be switching to the Hydro. All felt the steps that were minimized compared to the first generation made it so much easier to place and treatment time was cut in half.  When asked what isolation was used 8 used the isolite, 9 used cotton rolls and 2 used dry angles and one rubber dam.  When asked if when checking with an explorer did the sealant feel smooth all evaluators commented that all sealants placed with the Ultradent XT Hydro was smooth and sealed. Over half of the evaluation team commented the inspiral brush tip allows easy application and prevents bubbles, not stark white after placement like a lot of other brands. When asked what they liked least about the Ultraseal XT Hydro several commented they would like a thin fine metal tip rather than a brush. When asked what would they change there were not very many suggestions except they wish it came in other colors for kids.
