  Why Fix Baby Teeth?  

If your child experiences tooth decay or other damage to their teeth, there are several reasons to fix their baby teeth. This includes:

  •  Primary teeth are important since they guide proper eruption of permanent teeth
  •  Every child's smile affects their self esteem and confidence
  •  Primary teeth assist in the development of a child's speech
  •  Primary teeth help our young patients maintain proper nutrition with proper chewing
  •  Untreated baby teeth can have negative effects on the development of permanent teeth
  •  Untreated teeth can result in the child suffering from severe pain and the developing of an abscess. An abscess is when pus develops in a cavity formed within a tissue because of an inflammatory process in response to an infection. If the pus is not drained, the area can get more swollen and painful.
