What is a preventative resin restoration (PRR) or sealant?

  • PRR is a thin, resin coating applied to the chewing surfaces of permanent molars and premolars (mainly the pits and fissures).
  • More than 75% of dental cavities begin in the deep grooves of teeth.
  • Teeth with deep grooves are difficult to clean and very susceptible to decay.

What are the benefits of preventative resin restoration (PRR) or sealant?

  • Protects the tooth by sealing any grooves.
  • Create smooth, easier to clean surface that are more responsive to regular daily oral care at home (such as tooth brushing).

The procedure

  • The procedure is very simple! It takes a couple minutes per tooth.
  • The tooth grooves are cleaned and roughened to accept a preventive resin restoration (PRR) or sealant.
  • Dental bond “glue” is applied to the tooth grooves and cured with a blue light.
  • A resin material is then painted on the surface and cured with a blue light.
