Is it necessary to restore or place fillings on baby teeth? Won they eventually fall out anyway?

It is unwise to leave substantial amounts of decay in primary (baby) teeth if they are going to remain in the mouth for an extended length of time. Primary molars usually do not “fall out” until children are between the ages of 10-13. The bacteria from dental decay can cause infection which can result in pain and/or swelling and can have very serious consequences. Often expensive orthodontic problems can be avoided when primary teeth function as natural space maintainers. We will diagnose and recommend carefully restoring decayed teeth when necessary to maintain optimal health.
