The authors used bonded amalgams as pit and fissure sealants without mechanical preparation. They compared the two-year retention of the bonded amalgams with that of resin-based pit and fissure sealants. Clinical examinations at six months, one year and two years revealed no difference between the retention of the two sealants. This technique opens up the possibility of using bonded amalgam in pits and fissures surrounding very conservative preparations in a preventive amalgam restoration.
