Are Baby Teeth Important?

Baby teeth may start falling out as early as four years of age, but it can take a child all the way until seven to lose their first baby tooth. While baby teeth may not seem important, they play an important role in your child’s mouth.

The baby teeth are mainly important because they help your child speak and chew while creating a beautiful smile. The baby teeth serve a much larger purpose, though, and that is to help guide the permanent teeth when they are ready to come in. If the baby teeth are not in place when the permanent teeth come in, the permanent teeth may become crooked, cluttered, or shifted in position.

The Dentist House treats patients of all ages, and our dentist has experience with baby teeth. He can help you properly care for your child’s teeth from the baby stage throughout the permanent stage.

Dental Problems Children and Teens Face

Children and teens experience a variety of dental problems. One of the most common problems is tooth decay. When the tooth begins to decay, it causes cavities, sensitivity when eating or drinking, and more often than not, pain.

When dental decay is left untreated, tooth loss can occur and leave your little one without his teeth. In situations where a tooth has been lost, Dr. Mamaliger can discuss treatment options with you to ensure your child’s smile is restored properly.
