Why have a primary tooth filled?

Primary teeth are used for chewing, of course, but they also preserve the space for permanent teeth. Furthermore, it is recognized that a child with many cavities or abscesses may have difficulties at home and at school. This is why a decayed or broken tooth must be repaired, even though it will fall out later.

By repairing the tooth, your dentist will fix the problem and avoid a tooth extraction – never a pleasant prospect at any age.
