Melissa Family Dental & OrthodonticsAll children are prone to cavities. Sealants are one of the most preventative, cost-effective things parents can do to protect their child’s teeth from cavities. Best of all, sealants are simple, painless and shot-free!

Dental sealants are a resin material that bonds into the grooves of teeth, creating a barrier against food particles, plaque, and acidic food and drink. Sealants can last up to 10 years before needing to be replaced, and children and adults alike can benefit from their protection.

Children become candidates for sealants as soon as their adult molars come in around age 6-12 Make an appointment with Melissa Family Dental today and get your child started on the road to excellent dental health for life.
