The Importance of primary teeth

When it comes to caring for primary teeth, it’s important to maintain your baby’s smile. Neglected teeth can lead to long-term problems including:

  • Improper chewing and eating ability
  • Collapse of space preventing permanent teeth from erupting into the correct position
  • Development abnormalities of the jaw bones and muscles
  • Pain that prevents your child from being about to focus and concentrate, leading to issues with speech, learning, and self-esteem.

We believe that at the root of good oral health is the eruption of one’s first tooth. Children form teeth before they’re born and they typically erupt within a year.

Springfield Family Dental recommends that your child be seen at the age of one or when they first get their first tooth. Building a relationship of trust with the dentist early in the child’s life will lead to better oral health throughout their lifetime.
