Growth and Development

It is very important to maintain the health of the primary teeth. Neglected cavities can and frequently do lead to problems which affect developing permanent teeth. Primary teeth, or baby teeth are important for  proper chewing and eating, providing space for the permanent teeth and guiding them into the correct position, and  permitting normal development of the jaw bones and muscles. Primary teeth also affect the development of speech and add to an attractive appearance. While the front 4 teeth last until 6-7 years of age, the back teeth (cuspids and molars) aren’t replaced until age 10-13.

As a Pediatric Dentist, Dr. Jackie, is uniquely qualified and trained to assess the development of your child's teeth and jaws and how that timeline effects treatment decisions.
