How Does Baby Teeth Influence the Growth of Adult Teeth?

As a parent, you might be wondering why you need to take care of your child’s baby teeth if they will fall out anyway. Your child’s baby teeth actually serve an important purpose in the growth of adult teeth. 

We’re sharing a video by Delta Dental, one of the insurance providers we accept, that talks about the role that baby teeth play. You’ll find that the proper growth of baby teeth helps prevent orthodontic issues later down the road. Also, infections in baby teeth that reach the roots can also affect the healthy development of adult teeth.

It’s important to maintain good oral health practices as your child’s teeth grow. We encourage you to bring them in starting at the age of 3, so they can develop a positive relationship with the dentist. Plus, we can keep an eye on oral health issues and also address any orthodontic problems at early stages.
