What If My Child Loses Their Baby Teeth Too Early?

baby teeth fall out early? Boise

At Blaisdell Family Dentistry in Boise we stress to parents just how important their children’s primary teeth are. The need them to speak and to eat, and as kind of “placeholders” for the permanent teeth that will come in later.

A healthy smile improves self-image for everyone—young and old.

When pre-teens lose their baby teeth a long time before their permanent teeth erupt, it can impact tooth spacing.

Artifical Space Maintainers Keep Teeth From Shifting

If it happens, we may recommend an artificial space maintainer to keep the remaining baby teeth in place. This ensures that there will be adequate space for the permanent teeth to erupt.

We will remove the artificial space maintainer when it is no longer necessary.

At Blaisdell Family Dentistry in  Boise, we want to see healthy teeth and gums in all our patients. People from Eagle, Meridian, and Sun Valley come to us for general and family dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry. Call for an appointment today!
