The Dentist and Dental Hygienist will look for signs of tooth decay, check baby’s teeth for eruption, growth and development of jaw and for bacteria present. Baby teeth have thinner enamel than adult teeth and are therefore more susceptible to decay.

Baby teeth hold the position for adult teeth and because of this early loss of them may cause crowding to adult teeth or block an adult tooth from eruption. It’s also important to maintain the baby teeth for eating, proper speech development, and to give your child the best smile.
