Why milk teeth are important?
Children’s primary ( baby) teeth play a key role in dental development. They are important as they not only hold space for permanent teeth, but they are essential for chewing, biting, speaking and appearance. In addition they guide the permanent teeth into the place.

It’s easier to treat many mal-aligned teeth and jaws during childhood because the jaw bones are in the developing state.
Fillings are used to seal a small hole (cavity)in your teeth that is caused by decay. This simple , painless procedure prevents decay bacteria from speading further in to your tooth, and possibly infecting the root canal.
Pits and Fissure Sealants
Dental sealants are invisible plastic resin coating that smooths out the chewing surface of the back teeth- the place where your child is most likely to get tooth decay. A sealed tooth is far less likely to develop a cavity, which could require expensive dental treatments.
Children may need space maintainers if they lose their milk teeth much before the age when the permanent teeth are expected to erupt. Its purpose is to keep the space open to allow the permanent tooth to erupt and come in to place.
Crowns are protective coverings placed over damaged teeth, extensively decayed teeth and teeth which have undergone root canal treatment thereby strengthening them for chewing food.
