The natural grooves of your child’s teeth, due to the relative difficulty of cleaning them, can be susceptible to trapped food matter and bacteria, causing plaque, tartar and decay. One thing our pediatric dentist, Dr. Jeff Flannery, can do to prevent this is the application of dental sealants, which protect these vulnerable areas of your child’s teeth. If you are looking for dental sealants in Birmingham, Alabama, for your child, please call Oak Mountain Pediatric Dentistry today at 205-980-1338 for more information.
