Why are baby teeth Important?



Baby teeth act as place holders for adult teeth.  If baby teeth are lost too early the teeth that are left may move and not leave any room for the adult teeth to come in.  Healthy baby teeth make for a beautiful smile.  Decay in baby teeth can cause pain and life threatening infection, may affect speech development, and may make eating painful, resulting in poor weight gain.
