Importance of Baby Teeth

Baby Teeth Are Just As Important

Dr. Harbin and Dr. Jones and our team know it can be easy to underestimate the significance of baby teeth. At Hendersonville Family Dentistry, we sometimes meet parents who assume that since their child’s baby teeth, also known as primary teeth, eventually fall out and are replaced, they are less important. Did you know baby teeth serve purposes other than biting, chewing and digesting food properly?

Hendersonville Dentist Explains Why Baby Teeth Are Essential.

Baby teeth are essential not only for your child’s language development but they also serve other important functions, like contributing to the normal development of your child’s jaw bones and facial muscles. Baby teeth also reserve space for your child’s future permanent teeth.

If you have any questions about your toddler’s teeth, or if you child is experiencing issues that concern you, ,please give us a call to set up an appointment at our office, in Hendersonville TN.
