You may think that baby teeth are not important because they eventually fall out, but this is not the case. Baby teeth are the teeth children have when they are learning to use their mouths to eat and to speak. Being able to do so correctly and comfortably is vital to their continuing development.
Malocclusions, which can occur from thumb sucking, genetics, or even injury, can seriously affect your child’s oral health. Misaligned teeth and bites may also make way for future issues when permanent teeth come in. Baby teeth hold a space for permanent teeth, often having a large impact on how these secondary teeth grow in. Having healthy baby teeth ensures a better chance of having healthy permanent teeth as well. Additionally, children still need to take care of their oral hygiene. Not only will this help prevent disease and decay, but learning these habits early on instills these habits into their daily routine. This makes it more likely that they will continue such habits as they get older as children and as adolescents.
Schedule a preliminary visit here with us as Children’s Dental Group. An initial examination and consultation will provide your child with a comprehensive dental assessment which will determine their overall dental health and can determine if there are any present conditions that need to be treated. Early detection is important and helps prevent issues with permanent teeth. Visit our West Carson pediatric dental office and get the dental care and advice you deserve today.
