QUESTIONWhy do we need to care for baby teeth if they fall out anyways.

ANSWER: Premature loss of baby teeth will interfere with chewing and can affect the child's nutrition. It also can lead to drifting of adjacent teeth and closure of some of the space needed for the incoming teeth, causing crowding of the permanent teeth. Baby teeth are even more prone to decay than permanent teeth and, because they serve many important functions, they need to be cared for just as much as permanent teeth!
