An easy way to prevent tooth decay…

Are you prone to cavities? Do you want to protect your child’s teeth at an early age? Then PRR might be for you. Deep pits and grooves can be found on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. Such pits and grooves are termed ‘fissures’ and are usually so narrow that toothbrush bristles and streams of water are not able to clean them effectively. These form a favorable environment for bacteria to flourish, often resulting in tooth decay.

Preventative resin restorations are a dental treatment provided to help prevent tooth decay. It is a plastic like coat that is applied to the grooves of the biting surface of the back teeth. It smooths out the surface which protects the tooth from decay as it stops food and bacteria from getting in the tiny grooves.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long does PRR treatment last?

    They usually last for many years but you must have regular check-ups with the dentist to make sure the seal is still in place. They may wear over time, so the dentist may replace or add a sealant to prevent any decay.

  • What do I need to do after PRR?

    Following the Preventative resin restoration appointment, you may begin to eat straight away. The sealants must be maintained and regularly checked up on to check for any leakage, chipping and wear.

  • What are the benefits of frequent check ups?

    Frequent check ups can improve quality of life by spotting any problems early meaning the problem can be solved before it is even a problem. Maintaining good oral health also ensures you keep your smile!

  • When should I get PRR done?

    A PRR is used when a small cavity has already started in your tooth’s pits or grooves. The soft tooth structure in the decayed area is removed and then a tooth colored material is placed into the area.
