Procedures for Pit and Fissure Sealant Placement

Tray Set Up

Prior to the start of the procedure, a tray with all necessary instruments, supplies, and equipment should be prepared.  The items listed below are included in the sample tray set-up (Figure 6).  Each operator needs to determine what should be included on the tray based on personal preferences and the sealant material being used.
