Baby teeth are necessary to aid in proper nutrition, speech, and maintaining space for future permanent teeth.
If a baby tooth is loosened or lost due to injury, or darkens in color, call your child’s dentist. The dentist will evaluate the situation and discuss with you any needed treatment.
If you see an adult tooth growing in where a baby tooth is still present, contact your child’s dentist for guidance. This can lead to misaligned teeth that can be costly to correct.
