Embrace is the first pit and fissure sealant that bonds to the moist tooth. Research shows remarkable sealing ability and adaptation to tooth structure.1 The margins are undetectable, and the long-term success has been reported in the literature.2,3 Embrace releases and recharges phosphate and fluoride, and it has longer lasting antibacterial activity compared to other leading brands, especially against S. mutans.4,5
