Baby teeth are very important to normal dental development in children. They help to hold space and guide adult teeth into place. Not treating dental caries in children can result in toothaches, pain, possible infection, and even medical emergency. Teeth that are not treated will need to be extracted resulting in premature loss. Premature loss of baby teeth can cause adult teeth to grown in crooked and can affect your child’s ability to eat and breathe, as well their self esteem as they get older. Orthodontic treatment such as braces may be required. The best course of action is to maintain an effective oral hygiene routine at home, and bring your child for necessary dental treatment to help them to have a healthy smile for life.
