Are baby teeth really that important?

Primary, or “baby,” teeth are important for many reasons. Not only do they help children speak clearly and chew naturally, they also aid in forming a path that permanent teeth can follow when they are ready to erupt. Primary teeth are “place holders” for permanent teeth that are expected to erupt around 11 and 12 years of age.
