Dental Sealants in Abilene, TX

Our aim is for our patients to have a little dental treatment as possible. We also understand that kids who have the fewest replaced teeth when they reach adulthood have the lowest chance of future difficulties.

Sealants provide us with a tool that can significantly reduce the number of fillings performed in permanent teeth throughout important growth and development stages. Deep grooves reach into the core of the teeth on the chewing surface of molars. Under a microscope, these cracks can resemble a massive canyon. Most are narrower than a single toothbrush bristle but wide enough for bacteria to hide. In such a perfect hideaway, it's simple to see how cavities could emerge.

The likelihood of decay on the chewing surfaces is greatly reduced if the grooves in permanent molars are sealed at a young age. Thankfully, this treatment can be completed swiftly and painlessly. If there are no cavities in the grooves, they can be lightly cleaned and conditioned for bonding. The grooves are then filled with resin and sealed rapidly using a blue activating light. The permanent molars receive a cavity-prevention treatment within a few minutes.

Sealants are only good for a few years and may need to be updated or fixed regularly. However, the study shows that chewing surface cavity activity in capped molars is reduced by 90%. This low-cost, easy measure could help your child grow up with fewer fillings and a lower chance of extensive dental work in the future.

First time ever being at Dr. Spence's practice. Everyone from the assistant to Dr. Spence were absolutely lovely and professional. He was so personable and fun. Best experience I have ever had at a dentist office by far! The whole setting is so nice and comfortable. The staff really cares about your concerns and do their upmost to deliver/suggest the best possible treatment plan fitted for you personally. Also, special shout-out to the temporary dental hygienist Katy. She was so wonderful and nice. Whoever gets her as their hygienist is very blessed!

I was in a lot of pain, and couldn’t find a dentist to fit me in. Even my own wanted to put it off an entire week. Dr. Spence’s staff told me to come in right then. Dr. Spence took great care of me, it was super affordable, and his staff was the nicest! I’ll be transferring to Dr. Spence from now on. 10/10 would recommend!

After a visit to another dentist, I felt misled and uneasy. I have to say Dr. Spence was Fantastic. From the initial greeting, exam, to scheduling an appointment, I was nothing but impressed with Sam and his entire staff!! Thank you for an honest and straightforward assessment.

I came here for a second opinion and it was a wonderful experience. The staff and the doctor were very accommodating and helpful, I brought my 5 year old and now I know he will be treated correctly. Nothing is worth more than peace of mind and that is what I received during my visit.
