It is true that your child’s primary teeth will eventually fall out. But your child should only lose their teeth when their permanent ones are ready to start coming in. If your child loses a baby tooth too soon, our orthodontist, Dr. Alfred Griffin, can use a space maintainer in Chelsea, Massachusetts, to make sure your child’s smile remains healthy. If you think your child could benefit from this treatment, call Affordable Family Dental at 617-889-2668 to plan your child’s visit.
