UltraSeal XT plus hydrophobic pit and fissure sealant is a light-cured, radiopaque, fluoride-releasing composite sealant. It is strong and wear resistant because it is a 58%-filled resin and has low polymerization shrinkage. The spiral in the Inspiral™ Brush tip causes shear thinning of the filled, thixotropic resin, reducing its viscosity as it is placed. The resin firms when shear thinning ceases and placement is complete, preventing the resin from running before it can be light cured. Using PrimaDry™ drying agent with UltraSeal XT plus sealant enhances penetration into pits and fissures1 by eliminating moisture that can cause failure in hydrophobic sealants.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is UltraSeal XT plus sealant different from other tooth sealants?Yes! UltraSeal XT plus sealant has been the leader in sealants since 1998. It has an excellent retention rate and has always been BPA FREE.
Is UltraSeal XT plus sealant BPA free?
Yes. Ultradent has always been concerned with the potential harmful effects of BPA, and as such has never used Bisphenol A in the production of UltraSeal XT plus or UltraSeal XT hydro sealants.
Can UltraSeal XT plus Opaque White sealant be used as an opaquer?We don’t recommend UltraSeal XT plus sealant be used as an opaquer. Instead, we recommend using PermaFlo™ Dentin Opaquer flowable composite.
What is UltraSeal XT plus sealant’s diameter of filler in micrometers, weight percentage, and density?The average particle size is 1.5 microns, the sealant is 58% filled by weight, and is 1.73g/ml.
Can UltraSeal XT plus sealant be used to splint two teeth together?When performing periodontal splinting, it is wise to consider a reinforced restoration such as Ribbond or GlasSpan in conjunction with the restorative material. When either of these products is used, UltraSeal XT plus sealant can be used as the restorative material. Flow characteristics may be addressed with a more viscous material such as PermaFlo flowable composite, which is a 68%-filled resin.
Is it true that Sealants for Smiles uses UltraSeal XT plus sealant?Yes. Sealants for Smiles is a nonprofit organization that provides oral health education and tooth sealants to children in lower-income schools. Nonprofit organizations are subject to more stringent standards on the type and quality of materials used in their programs. One of the reasons Sealants for Smiles opted to use UltraSeal XT plus sealant was because of its long-standing reputation in the dental field.
