Why Baby Teeth Are Important

Most often you won't be able to see your baby's teeth. But they are there. In fact, they start forming when they are in the womb and it usually appears as early as three to four months of age. These teeth are known as baby teeth. However, most of them start to really erupt and becomes visible through the gums between the age of six months to one year of age. All of the twenty baby teeth will erupt once they are three years old. And all those teeth are important, even though they will soon fall out and become replaced with permanent teeth.

Importance of Baby Teeth

  • Helps the child chew the food easily and properly

  • Helps the child talk more clearly and quickly

  • Holds the space in the jaws for permanent teeth that are starting to grow under their gums

  • Acts as a foundation for a lifetime of healthy and beautiful smile

We understand the importance of taking care of your baby's teeth. This is why here at the Park Meadows Dental we offer a wide range of dental services that will help make sure that your baby's teeth are well taken care of.
