Baby teeth aren’t just for chewing. Each one also acts as a guide for the eruption of the permanent tooth that replaces it. If a baby tooth is lost too early, the permanent tooth loses its guide. It can drift or erupt into the wrong position in the mouth. Neighboring teeth also can move or tilt into the space. This means that there may not be enough space for the permanent tooth to come in.Dentists call baby teeth primary or deciduous teeth.

If your decay is in the early stages, your dentist may apply a fluoride varnish to the area. This can help to stop further decay, particularly if you lower your intake of sugar.If decay has worn away your enamel and caused a cavity, your dentist will remove the decay and restore your tooth with a filling. If the nerve in the middle of your tooth is damaged, you will need a root canal treatment, which removes the nerve and restores the tooth with a filling or crown.If the tooth is so badly damaged it cannot be restored, the only option may be to remove it.
