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.

Dr. Spence and his staff are so kind and knowledgeable. He is conservative with care and does not rush into decisions but gives the kids time for growth and allows the body to do what it can before becoming invasive with procedures. 4/5 due to lack of online payment system. We've used his office for 19 years for our entire family. He is great with the kids too. He has a great laugh and I totally trust him with my family!
