Sealants and Bonding in Amarillo, TX

A sealant is a thin, tooth-colored or clear material that Julie, our hygienist, will apply over the chewing surfaces of the back molars. These chewing surfaces have many narrow pits and grooves that tend to accumulate plaque, food debris, and bacteria, making the back molars more susceptible to decay. By placing sealants over the back molars, Julie can block out decay-causing bacteria, plaque, and food debris while simultaneously creating a smooth surface that is easier to keep healthy and clean. A sealant can be placed in just one quick visit to Sherwood Dental Center, and the procedure itself takes just a few minutes. Call us today to schedule your next appointment and learn more about the benefits of sealants and general dentistry.
