The Importance of Baby Teeth

The Importance of Baby Teeth


Why Baby Teeth Are Important?

Healthy primary teeth (baby teeth) are important for proper chewing and eating, provide space for the permanent teeth and guide them into the correct position, and they help to promote normal development of the jaw bones and muscles. Keeping the baby teeth healthy and in the right position also help your child feel confident about their smile. Cavities, trauma and crowding of baby teeth can all lead to problems when the permanent teeth come in the arches.
