Baby Teeth ARE Important!

Many parents question the importance of filling and preserving baby (aka deciduous) teeth. After all, they are just going to fall out anyway, right!?

The truth is that baby teeth serve many important functions:

  1. Just like in adults, they help our children to chew and speak properly
  2. Preserving a baby tooth is the best way to hold the space for the developing adult tooth to come into its ideal position (and potentially avoid the need for braces :-X  )
  3. They serve to help form good oral hygiene habits when the adult teeth come in
  4. MOST IMPORTANTLY, untreated decay in baby teeth leads to infection in the jaw bone.  This can lead to a swelling which has the potential to cause severe health issues, as well as cosmetic and structural damage to the adult tooth forming below!

 

Please be sure to help your children take wonderful care of their beautiful smiles!!
