Sealants vs. Varnishes: Current Study
Pit and fissure sealants or fluoride varnishes?
Dentists should use sealants or fluoride varnish - as well as other means - to limit the onset of tooth decay. Application of sealants is a recommended procedure to prevent or control caries.

However longer follow-ups shows a reduction of the preventive effect.
