Dental Sealants to Protect Your Teeth
What are Dental Sealants?
Dental sealants are a thin coating that protects the back molars from decay. Made of thin plastic, sealants bond to the teeth and can protect the teeth for up to 10 years. However, they can chip and crack as they age, so your dentist or hygienist will check on them at each dental exam. The application process itself is painless and is performed in the office.

Sealants for Children and Adults in Morgantown, WV
Sealants are a great way to protect your child’s teeth, as they act as barriers between the enamel and bacteria. Children between six and 14 can benefit from sealants, as this is the prime time for cavities and other dental issues. Even children with baby teeth can reap the benefits of sealants—just speak with one of our knowledgeable dentists to see if sealants are right for your child.
Adults are also candidates for dental sealants. While not as common, many adults find that it can help prevent cavities and decay, as well.
