Preventing Child Tooth Decay the Easy Way, with Preventive Resins!
Preventive Resin Restorations (PRR) prevent cavities from forming in the deep grooves of teeth when they first erupt in the mouth of a child.
The deep grooves of permanent back teeth in children are the most vulnerable to decay when first erupting. These grooves often have pits and fissures where bacteria harbor and the toothbrush bristles cannot reach. Most tooth decay in children and teens occurs on these surfaces.
We utilize a WaterLase™ laser to safely and painlessly kill bacteria on the deep grooves of the teeth that would otherwise grow under the Preventive Resin Restoration. This makes the PRR long-lasting. Then a high-strength, tooth-colored, composite resin filling material is bonded onto the tooth surface, effectively sealing out the tooth from bacteria and decay.
