Baby teeth, or primary teeth, serve an important role in the development of your child’s overall dental health by providing space and guidance for the permanent teeth as they begin to come in. They also help maintain good nutrition by permitting proper chewing of food and digestion and allow for proper growth of jawbones and muscles to facilitate speech development. Left untreated, decay in primary teeth can lead to problems in the developing permanent teeth. Additionally, the premature loss of primary teeth may require a mouth appliance to maintain/reserve the space where a permanent tooth will eventually erupt.
