Why Baby Teeth Matter

Maybe baby teeth are just for babies, but that doesn’t make them unimportant. In fact, they are critical to your children’s health and development, from enabling them to chew to helping them smile and even speak.

They also hold space in the jaws for permanent teeth that will grow beneath the gums. When a baby tooth is lost too early, permanent teeth can drift into the empty space, making it difficult for other adult teeth to find room when they grow in. This can make teeth crooked or crowded.
