I can just let the baby teeth fall out right?
Not true! While it is true that baby teeth eventually come out, they are essential in the meantime. It’s important to know that baby teeth fall out in two waves – the front teeth usually between 6 and 8 years of age, while the back teeth fall out later – between 10 and 12 years. Left untreated, dental cavities can result in problems in growth, development, school performance, and peer relationships. So unless they’re about to lose that tooth, it’s usually best to try to fix.
