This present study was conducted to evaluate and compare the tensile bond strength of three different pit and fissure sealants – 2 light cured resin sealants. Teethmate F1 and 3M Concise and one conventional glass ionomer, GC Fuji III sealant by using invasive and non-invasive techniques in premolars in vitro. Sixty premolars were taken for the study and were divided into 6 groups with ten teeth in each group. In group 1 and 2 teeth filled with Teethmate F1 light cured resin sealant using invasive and non-invasive technique respectively. In group 3 and 4 teeth filled with 3M Concise light cured resin sealant using invasive and non-invasive technique respectively. Groups 5 and 6, teeth filled with chemically cured glass ionomer sealant Fuji III using invasive and non-invasive technique respectively. The results showed the Teethmate F1 light cured resin sealant had a higher bond strength than 3M Concise light cured resin sealant and glass ionomer Fuji III sealant. The difference was statistically very significant (P<0.01). Results also showed that the invasive groups 1, 3 and 5 showed a higher tensile bond strength compared to the non-invasive groups 2, 4 and 6 for all the 3 sealants. This difference was statistically very significant (P,0.01).
