Why Primary Teeth Are Important:

Primary teethMany parents ask why baby teeth are so important to their child’s
health when they fall out on their own eventually. Primary teeth stay in place
until a permanent tooth underneath erupts, pushing it out and taking it’s place.
These teeth are important to the natural development and growth of what will
become your child’s permanent smile. Emphasizing healthy oral habits at an early
age also promote good nutrition and encourage a positive self-image.

In some instances, when a child loses
baby teeth too soon, a space maintainer may be recommended to prevent space loss
and future dental damage. Speak with one of our doctors to find out if this is
an option for your child. If you live in or around Irvine, call or schedule an appointment today.
