Why are baby teeth important
Baby Teeth is very critical to your child’s development and health. It helps your child speak, smile and chew. Also, they keep space in the jaws for permanent teeth that are developing under the gums. When it is lost early, the permanent teeth can flow into space, and it is difficult for other adult teeth to find the space when they grow. This results in crooked or crowded teeth. That is why babies should have a good oral care to keep their permanent teeth aligned.
A dental visit should be done after a first tooth comes in. It is called well-baby checkup for an early age. The dental professionals will also show you how to clean the child’s teeth properly aside from checking cavities and other problems.
Here are tips to prevent cavities:
Maintain the cleanliness of your child’s teeth. This is the simplest way to keep healthy teeth.

The dentist may require space maintainers if you lose a tooth early or have the primary tooth extracted because of dental decay. It is essential to know the advantages of using a space maintainer and how it can support your child’s dental health.
A space maintainer is a tool that is custom-made by dental professionals using acrylic material. It is either removable or fastened in the mouth. Its objective is to maintain the space open to allow the permanent tooth to grow and come into place. The baby teeth are important to the growth of the jaw bones, teeth, and muscles and it also helps to manage permanent teeth into position. If space is not kept then the teeth can go into open space and orthodontic medication may be needed. Not all children who lose baby teeth at an early age require space maintainers, but a consultation with your dentist should be done to know if using a space maintainer is needed.
Here are the types of space maintainers for children:
Removable: This is similar to orthodontic tools and is usually made of metal. In some cases, an unnatural tooth, may be used to fill a space that must be kept open for the unerupted tooth.
Fixed: There are four kinds of fixed maintainers: crown and loop, unilateral, distal shoe and lingual.
Here at Smile Zone, we offer space maintainers for those little smiles that require them.
Our trained dentist will assure that the space maintainer is correctly placed.
