Baby teeth (primary teeth) are important because they will guide permanent teeth into place.  Children need their primary teeth for chewing food and supporting good nutrition.  They will help your child speak more clearly as they become verbal.  Baby teeth aid in the farmation of the jaw and face and create a beautiful smile.  Be good to those baby teeth because Dental Health = Total Health!
