    Author(s): Baraa M Jabar* and Muna S Khalaf

    Aims: the aims of this (in vitro study) were to investigate the effect of Ozonated Water pre-treatment on the micro leakage of fissure sealants prepared by different surface etching modalities. Material and Methods: According to the pre-treatment approach, 80 standardized premolar teeth were separated into five groups (n=16). Group 1: Universal Bond Quick (self-etching)+ozone application+Fissure Sealant (FS). Group 2: Universal Bond (self-etching)+FS (without ozone). Group 3: Universal Bond (etch-and-rinse)+ozone application+FS, Group 4: Universal Bond (etch-and-rinse)+FS (without ozone), Group 5: phosphoric acid etching+FS (control). All teeth's fissures were sealed with fissure sealant material after surface pre-treatments. The samples were then subjected to thermos cycling (1 minute of 500 cycles of 5°C/55°C for each sample)..
