Baby teeth will fall out anyway, why fix them?

Cavities in baby teeth progress rapidly. Neglected cavities can lead to problems that affect the child’s permanent dentition, speech development, and self-esteem. Healthy baby teeth (or primary teeth) are important for children’s dental / facial growth and development. Baby teeth not only guide the eruption of permanent teeth, but also permit normal growth of children’s oral and maxillofacial jawbones and muscles.

Just like adults, children need healthy teeth to be able to eat varieties of food, speak clearly, and smile with confidence. While the front teeth start to fall out at 6-7 years of age, the back teeth (canines and molars) don’t fall out until age 12-13.
