If Primary Teeth are Temporary, Do Kids Still Need to See a Dentist?
Although primary teeth are temporary, the impact they have on your child’s oral development can’t be understated. Your child’s baby teeth are the foundation for their adult teeth because they create space for them to grow.
If children experience tooth loss before their permanent teeth grow, it can lead to crowding or crooked teeth. In addition to that, primary teeth help babies and young children learn to chew, smile, and talk.
