WHY FILL BABY TEETH WHEN THEY FALL OUT ANYWAY?
•First of all, a decayed tooth can become abscessed and cause discomfort for a child. Tooth decay causes significant pain, loss of school days and may lead to infections and even death.
•Second, while it is true that baby teeth do eventually come out, it is also true that they are important to a child in the meantime.
Here’s why: Primary or baby teeth hold space for the permanent teeth to grow in. If one is lost, the others can shift into the empty space and prevent the permanent tooth from erupting. This often means a crooked smile in a child’s future.
