Removing decay and repairing damaged teeth is key to both good oral health and overall well-being. While most adults would agree with the importance of protecting their adult teeth, many overlook the developmental significance of the primary dentition, or "baby teeth." It is crucial to maintain the health of the baby teeth (even though they will eventually be replaced) because they are necessary for eating, speaking, proper growth and development of the jaws and placement of the permanent teeth. Most pediatric dental patients have both adult and baby teeth, or mixed dentition, and a pediatric dental specialist understands how proper care of both can lead to a lifetime of healthy smiles.
