UltraSeal XT hydro Opaque White is for prophylactic sealing of pits and fissures
UltraSeal XT hydro is a light-cured, radiopaque, fluoride-releasing composite sealant. It is stronger and more wear resistant because it is a 53%-filled resin and has less polymerisation shrinkage.
The spiral brush action of the Inspiral Brush tip causes shear thinning of the filled, thixotropic UltraSeal XT hydro, reducing its viscosity as it is placed. The resin firms when shear thinning ceases and placement is complete, preventing it from running before it can be light cured.
The hydrophilic chemistry with its characteristic thixotropic nature chases moisture (that in hydrophobic sealants can cause sealant failure) deep into the pits and fissures on a microscopic level. Once there, the advanced adhesive technology securely bonds the sealant to the enamel, increasing marginal retention and reducing microleakage. It also eliminates the need to pretreat the tooth with a drying agent, so you can give your patients effective treatments even faster. Providing quality treatments fast ultimately means more production for your practice.
The fluorescing properties of UltraSeal XT hydro allow you to quickly check the retention of the seal at the time of placement AND at later visits. This eliminates guesswork and gives you confidence your patients sealants are securely intact.

Hints & Tips
Q: Some dentists ask if the fissure sealing materials UltraSeal XT plus and hydro are self-adjusting (by the chewing function of the patient). This would eliminate the need for the dentist to adjust the occlusion.
A: Fissure sealants which are self adjusting by the chewing activities of the patient have to be rather soft and therefore, the wear of the whole sealing is rather high. Our fissure sealants are not self-adjusting by chewing. This is a good thing, because so they have a high wear resistance and a long lifetime. The hardness is enhanced by a high filler content: UltraSeal XT plus has 58 % filler (by weight), UltraSeal XT hydro has 53 % filler (by weight). When applying sealants, you should not overfill the fissures and do not cover the cusp slopes. Then you have only little work with adjusting the occlusion.
