The aim of this study was to evaluate the adhesion of two materials used in sealing pits and fissures: Pitt and Fisure and Fissurit FX (Voco), with the help of the scanning electronic microscope (SEM). The results of the study revealed a much higher quality of the Fissurit FX (Voco) product both in terms of adhesion to the enamel and material homogeneity. The Pitt and Fisure product showed a high degree of detachment from the enamel, marginal infiltration, large particles and a high concentration of inorganic particles.
