The article presents a description of preventive resin restoration (PRR) along with its advantages and disadvantages. PRR should be employed when minimal pit and fissure caries and deep pits and fissures are observed. Some of the advantages include elimination of leakage and prevention of decay in adjacent pits and fissures. While employing this technique, the patient suffers less discomfort as compared to mechanical tooth removal. Some of the disadvantages associated with this technique include strict adherence to the principles of acid etching and longer time required as compared to a single-surface amalgam restoration.
