Baby teeth are very important, not only for chewing and proper nutrition but also because they guide permanent teeth into place.

You should do everything you can to prevent the early loss of your baby’s teeth. However, if your child loses a tooth early on, space maintainers can be used to preserve the space for adult teeth.

You should also consider scheduling regular checkups for your baby’s teeth to allow the dentist to diagnose some early signs of bite problems (malocclusion’s) in their early stages and treat them before braces are required.
