Dentistry’s Best-Kept Secret
- Seals Out Decay
- Simple Procedure
- No Shots or Drilling
- Guaranteed for Life
Everyone has tiny cracks in their teeth where decay can start. PR coatings will protect your teeth for life.
Stop decay in its cracks with Preventive Resin Coatings. We estimate at least half of all decay starts in the microscopic cracks in teeth. These are on the chewing parts (the top) of your teeth. These cracks are so small not even a single toothbrush bristle can reach them. It is just a matter of time before decay starts because you are not able to clean the cracks. You are helpless. Studies show approximately 90% will decay.
How does a Preventive Resin Coating help prevent decay?
A Preventive Resin Coating (PRC) is a plastic material that is usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, (premolars and molars). This plastic resin bonds into the depressions and groove (pits and fissures) of the chewing places of the teeth. The PRC acts as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque, acids, and decay.
Is a PRC application a complicated procedure?
PRCs are easy for Dr. Dalley to apply, and it only takes a few minutes to seal each tooth. The teeth to be sealed are cleaned with an air abrasive machine to remove any stain or microscopic decay. The PRR is then painted onto the tooth enamel, where it bonds directly to the tooth and hardens. And the best part is that there are no shots or drilling required!
How long do PRCs last?
As long as the PRC remains intact, the tooth surface will be protected from decay. PRCs hold up under the force of normal chewing. As long as you brush and floss regularly you can know that you have just prevented that tooth from ever having decay. We guarantee PRCs for life. If they come out or break we will replace them at no charge.
Are PRCs just for kids?
No, everyone has pits and fissures in their teeth where decay can start. Why not eliminate the possibility of decay?
Do PRC's save you money?
Yes! Decay costs $$$. Even the smallest filling is more expensive than a PRC and prevention is better than treatment. PRCs are very cost effective. Savings in both dollars and teeth can be gained by PRCs, rather than allowing decay and then needing to restore the tooth with a filling or even a crown.
